Well no I dont live in a hole. I also have not kept up with the group buy threads on this in all their incarnations. That would almost be a full-time job. And unless I am blind its not stickied at the top of the forum, not that that would make it more likely for me to read it.
The question was intended to address other potential solutions to your prob, but based on your wise-ass response, I am sure you are wise enough to handle it.
