I like the way you think. Personally, I often don't get to nodes until way after it has been posted, so I'm used to seeing 3-4 ++ votes where if I posted it immediately I might get 10 fold.
I'm not out for XP though, I just like to give my 2c if I feel I have something to offer that hasn't been offered yet... right or wrong. I'm a firm believer in timtowtdi, so I follow that principle.
I too search for and peruse old posts, and just this week alone, I'm sure I've given 50+ ++ votes to posts that were circa pre-2k5.
About the hockey sticks... I just finished laundry, so I'm running to the pub (as I don't have cable) to see if the Kings can win their first Stanley Cup... at home ;)
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
