As a matter of form, rather than resurrect 7 or 8 year old threads, it is always better to start a new post. Some of the contributors you are replying to are probably dead by now. Cookshack has left a lot of old stuff in place when they started the "new" Forum. Some of it was meant as legacy, but this particular thread is really moribund and should be archived.
How about "Hi, how are you, welcome back!"
"Some of the contributors you are replying to are probably dead by now."
What a pleasant thought.
