Going slightly off topic, why do you, Martin, and Trevor and Dave, prescribe confusion to, old age? I know I’ve done it myself, but judging by this forum, there are quite a few young’uns, who are not only very confused but rely on the older members of FWT to get them back on track. Age may bring some physical slowness, but it leaves some surprisingly agile and perceptive minds with a wealth of experience to draw upon - even though the odd senior moment may still switch in!
Admittedly I am stepping down from the plate in a couple of months, when my years will start with a big 7, but passing my main work on to a younger designer (a new recruit to FW but a ton of web experience) has been refreshing and I shall be there to act as aFW mentor, should he wish it, for a while yet. And I expect I shall keep dipping into FWT for when I start the odd personal job and family favour and relating to a new venture I envisage keeping my brain cells alive a little longer.

I’m really sorry about this. I’m not sure, however, that I know precisely what post you’re referring to. One thing I did notice this morning was that I posted a query about downloading files from my web site and not having the file open in the browser and having to option-click to download it. At almost the same time that my post appeared, there also appeared a post by David Sahadev that was almost identical to mine and there were suddenly two threads going that were essentially the same topic.
If that’s not what you’re referring to, David, as I said above, I’m terribly sorry if I inadvertently did a duplicate post on something else.
As far as older folks getting confused, I’m about as old as they come and if I’m totally confused here, I’m afraid that’s just one of the myriad of joys that come with old age.
I would appreciate it, though, if you could let me know whether this was a coincidence of two threads by two people starting at almost the same moment or if it was something else?

I have just spent 10 mins writing a detailed explanation in answer to your other post - only to discover that you had started a new thread and had your question answered.
Please try not to duplicate posts on the same subject as us older folk get confused.
