I even use key words that it will later show in the title when/if it does come up with something that I put in previously the did not work.
Just saying,

Herb the best way to find something you posted is to click on your own user name in a post and go to your home page. There look for the menu bar with Statistics on it. When you click on it you get the option to see every post you've ever made or every thread you've started. Going back through every post isn't practical for most of us that have been here for a while but even the most prolific of us tend to only have a few pages of threads started.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
