I am starting this as a new thread to avoid extreme thread drift.  I do not think that a drifting thread is necessarily a bad thing.  There have been many times when I have skipped reading a topic because I did not find it applicable to my needs.  However, when I see that that same thread seems to go on longer than it should, I take a look at it.  Many times, after the initial question is dealt with, these threads drift a bit into all sorts of interesting areas.  So I believe that a little drift not only can be a good thing, but adds to the depth of the community (dare I use the word "organic" here?).

I too think it is good the problem is though the search function here is not that great anyways and it screws with a person asking a specific question but it's there just takes a more searching

Is this the same as sliding around parking lot corners while texting on your phone?

It's like drifting around corners in your bus, but doesn't require ice, like the bus does.

I think in engineering a "drift" is a tapered tool that you drive into a hole in order to enlarge it. Thread drift must be then tapping a thread into that enlarged hole I guess..

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

Its ok by me. Many times these post get really bogged down like compost, so in need of a flip or stir.
As we all know sometimes there can be a wiff! Of somethin and other times the stir just drifts away.

Good day

Well, sure. It's a time proven flavor in oil. I usually cook one side of the fish and flip it and then cook the other side because I don't like deep frying.

I don't know if the server can take all of this.

So do you like the old Darin or new Darin on BEWITCHED?
But I really think it would be neat if FORD reintroduced the FLATHEAD but add ECOBOOST.
But honestly, I think MAXWELLHOUSE and FOLGERS are good.
