Thank you for your reply. I certainly understand the problem of explaining highly technical aspects in a forum setting and the time it would take. But if questions are posted, you (or others- we have some pretty smart guys here at GT) can answer to the level you deem appropriate and then refer the poster to a link or urge them to contact you for more details. That way your knowledge reaches Everyone who reads it instead of a single person. You could even post some sticky thread for FAQs and submoderators to take some of the burden off of your shoulders. I have seen this work at other sites and would LOVE to see an active I2/thermal forum here at GT.
(anyone: other than here in this subforum, i have never seen or heard of a forum message that all threads must be approved by moderator here at GT. has anyone else?)
