    Hey now! This thread was off to a great start, but it's taking a serious turn for the worse.

    Really though, feel free to trout slap me :trout: if I ever close a thread due to one off topic post.

    Hi Matthew,

    You'll find that threads here usually tend to wander a bit; and most members participating on threads tend to bring it back on topic soon enough.

    Threads wander - because most threads are like conversation. Very hard to have very focussed conversation!

    We aren't a very "lock-happy" bunch
