Hey, thanks for resurrecting it from the dust bin, where it probably would have stayed had you not decided that the world needed saving!

I just want to thank everyone for confirming that I am the KING OF ALL FREDS. Not like everyone didn't already know that, but hey, thanks to positron I can sing my praises to high heaven, cuz that's just the kind of guy I am!

Hi Chip,

I ressurected nothing, that is the point. Its a 'sticky', meaning its not going anywhere from the top until its unstuck. This has nothing to do with saving the world, I am quite unsure what you mean by that. I neither know what a Fred is, nor do I care, but congratulations; I'm sure your mother is proud.

All I am asking is that pointless, and now outdated, threads be removed from the top of this particular forum lest we end up like C and V where one has to sort through a mountain of crap to see whats being posted.

Best regards Fred,

Best regards Fred,
somebady has their panties in a twist... I am glad for the Fred posts, I never knew what fred was before and now it makes me happy to know that fred is kind of like a zen philosophy... it is only what you make of it, live and let live and stay true to your inner Fred...

... take a deep breath Positron and step outside to smell the roses, they are much more interesting than these forums anyways...
