    No problem.

    Think nothing of it, George. We ALL forget things we've posted  on this list.
    As I wrote once before, mailing lists like this are 'ephemeral  things'. The
    same topics pop up again and again and people repeat themselves  sometimes and
    despite the seeming permanence of the list archives, it's all gone  and
    forgotten in weeks or months. As for age, I don't think THIS aspect of age  is
    relevant in any way. As I said (as explicitly as I possibly could), the main  "age
    issue" is simply one of "common culture".
