Maybe you're new to internet forums or something, but let me just explain to you that it is generally considered inappropriate to reply to extremely old threads. If you missed the discussion, then it's usually best to just leave it alone. Go ahead and read the thread if you're interested or whatever, but nobody really wants to see this thing pop back up again after 4 years.
I wasn't the person that bumped up the thread in the first place, I replied to it after somebody else had already bumped it up.. About the nobody wanting to see it pop-up again after 4 years.. well I was happy to see it pop-up again, seeing as I, and many other CAG's that read these forums will not have read it and it's an interesting story.
Bumping up threads that are old and are no longer relevant or provide any useful information is stupid, bumping up something like this is not.
