    I just remembered why I haven't been to this forum for a long time.

    I can't find my way around it. I was reading a thread and had to leave it and can't relocate the thread. PITA!

    Give us a hint and we can help you find it. If its a search that's not working, remember that searches inside individual subforums (e.g. general discussions, or Performance and Customization) only work within those subforums, but a search done in the tw200 forum will search all subforums. If you don't realize this searches don't find things that you know exist and can be bewildering. Now if you just forgot what you were reading, we can't help you other than to say hang in there an it will appear again. Cheers, Tom

    If all else fails, don't hesitate to use a google search, just goto google.com and type in "site:tw200forum.com oil". Just in case you're looking for something with less than four letters. (I use oil as as an example, because that's one of the lesser debated topics, and can be hard to find).

    If you have to leave a topic you want to come back to just click the watch this thread button in the upper right corner.

    Then sellect the option you want. I use (No Notification

    This option will not send out any notifications, but will retain the topic in your subscriptions panel
    .)



    Then just go to your watched threads and delete when done.

    Phelonius, I have that same problem with tools in my shop. I set them down for a moment, and then can't find them. Sometimes I think I am sharing them with a fellow from another dimension. Gerry
    Take care my Friend.........

    Coincidence? I think we're plagued by the same interdimensional miscreant.



    Only swipes 10,12,13,14 and 17mm wrenches and sockets, then puts them back once you've replaced them?



    Leaves cans of chainlube on the ol' lady's washer just to hear you get yelled at for it?



    Cures header paint in your oven?



    I hate that dood.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Got that same tool problem over here and sometimes it takes days before that darn other returns the tool in the oddest places. On some of my more needed tools that I have a half dozen or more of them that darn other will hide all of them for days on end.

    Actually it was me, sorry bout all the trouble...



    Best I ever had was a 10mm long handled "bonney" open/box wrench

    The ever desireable 10- useful in so many places, fit my hand like it was made for it, nicely weighted and fit tight to... well you know- my nuts



    Till one day she walked off

    Been lookin for her ever since



    And all those other brands and sizes are just a way to forget... but I'll settle down again- with the next one... I'll just learn to accept imperfection... I swear it



    Seriously though- I appreciate the tip on how to google the forum by Rodney:

    "just goto google.com and type in "site:tw200forum.com oil". "

    Thanks Rodney for the great tip and not just for 3 letter searches!!
