Oh well, now we know." then the next time someone posts their freezer 'puter idea instead of twenty pages of talking sense to a rock everyone just posts a link to the "f4il thread". or for ultimate shootz and giggles repeat the whole process!:d
edit: To be fair, in the latest instance of this at least the guy conceded the point fairly quickly instead of arguing with the entire forum like usual. It still doesn't excuse the lack of basic search skills.
