I've heard rumors about this mythical post, but I haven't been able to find it (the search feature on the old board is, um, not very good (that was politely put, wasn't it.) Could someone please repost it, or tell me where to find it.

Thanks,
Grebki (FHO wannabe)

Thanks. I'm gettin' in my car now, to speed down to Charlie's, narrowly missing assorted pedestrians and other cars in my mad dash to get to the sale (I beleive the most common cause of road rage is the potential of being late to the urgent 10% off lint sales we have now and then.)
