I agree with writersblock about the answer but not the way it was told. but his retelling of it is close to mine so i will save time and not repeat it.

OLD is just a matter of relativity ... Maybe someone have never heard of it before ... Maybe we have heard it when we were young and now we are old :P It was I must say a nice attempt and about reading a puzzle before posting, I can put it this way ... the lines should have read "Don't post any puzzle before you have gone thru the 80,000 puzzle that is here and you remember all of them" ... That was just an IDEA :P

By old I meant over a month old, like in the Important: READ BEFORE POSTING tag at the top. And as for reading all of the topics, no, it's called a search.
