Nice work, as usual. I'm surprised "they" haven't made you moderator by now. :)

If anybody deserves moderator status, it's Chip. His conduct has been great and all of the posts that I've seen by him over these past few months are mature and to the point. I especially value his reluctance to join in useless chatter and speculation, something that's truly rare on these forums right now.

Great post.

To give the benefit of the doubt to chad78 & co., maybe all they needed was to see the information in one place like this rather than spread out among many threads.

Done. I guess now that it's pinned I'll have to keep it up to date ;)

Wow, I'm embarassed to admit, but I didn't realize he WASN'T a moderator until D.C. mentioned it...
