Wow... that is an ugly fan.
I'll put a copy of it in the recall archives.

Where would the recall archives be found, I think they must have been moved.

There is a dedicated forum for recalls. I've seen some of them that were posted are gone. That's because if no one responds they time off the page. They must be entered as a sticky.

Weird. Recalls used to be posted as stickies at the top of each topic page.

I think the problem with that is there were too many sticky threads at the top of the forum.

Just my opinion, but I think they should have left the recalls as stickies at the top of a particular page. Without the link you provided I never could have found the recalls and after I knew about where they were I still almost didn't find them. After I found them it appears to me that several recalls from the old sticky got lost in the transfer. Change for the sake of change isn't necessarily good nor is it always forward progress, in my opinion.

I will look into it. Usually this was Ray's job but he hasn't been around for a while.

Yea, Ray was a regular, but hasn't been here in about 6 or 7 months. Can't help but wonder what happened to him. Hope he's Ok.
