Hello and welcome to this BBC news interactive forum. I'm Peter Biles. For the past year there has been a way to find out what everyday life is like for people in Baghdad. It's been to log on to the website of "Salam Pax" who's become known as the 'Baghdad blogger'. His internet diary of ordinary - or rather extraordinary - life in Iraq, picked up a huge audience around the world. 'Salam Pax' - his real name has never been revealed - spent months writing an often bleakly humorous web log which detailed the fears and hardships of Iraqi citizens as they prepared for the inevitable conflict. Well now his internet diary has been compiled into a book. You've sent in your many questions from around the world, and I'm pleased to say 'Salam' is here to answer them. Welcome.
