Cybalounge: Annotated Screens
Screen shots for registering in Cybalounge and using the info and controls on the main screens.  You don't need to register to go into Cybalounge--you can enter as a guest.  But when you register  you get a free world you can build in, along with the ability to friend other people and contact them.  They may be able to answer questions or send you things they have made.
