I've never owned one, but thought about it a few times, and exhaustive number crunching always led to the same conclusion - if I can't afford a new one, then I can't afford a used one.
I don't know where you two come up with your conclusions but I don't know of anytime that I asked for any input except for the basic question.

That's the beauty of the internet and particularly trucking forums -- you always get more than you paid for.

You posted an unanswerable question with no pertinent details, over 400 people have viewed it and a couple have responded. You now know what to buy so consider yourself lucky.

Another example of how mike bends the truth = deceives = lies.

At the time mw2012 wrote his last post, there were a little over 400 views of 10 posts.

It is much more reasonable to assume 40 viewers read each post once to achieve 400 views.

40 viewers times 10 views each = 400 views.

( I know...I know...math and facts don't make any sense to mike. )

Really?

Geez, I wish I could get that drunk.

You had a question? I didn't see any "?" in your original post.

We all know that Mike is a bald-faced liar (or at least partially bald) and should have written "400 views" rather than "400 people...".

But I think you may have gotten mixed up about how vBulletin counts views, 2mega. I think it counts clicks (by a human or a bot) on the individual thread rather than views of each post on a given thread.
I say that because, once we click on a thread it seems to be recorded whether or not we scroll through each post or not.

What's interesting is that you were one of the viewers and yet you didn't give the OP the benefit of your 2 million miles of experience. Why didn't you buy your own truck? I know it would be tough to integrate something about the hated minorities and Jooz in your opinion, but that has never kept you from posting nonsense before.

Got any more facts and examples?

Sincerely,

Mike

A little more on views... It seems that these boards can be set to add views instantly or add them after a certain time period has elapsed. If you click on a thread and it doesn't immediately add to the view count, there is a time delay which is supposedly easier on the server. If you view it several times (try it) and come back in a half hour or so, you'll see the count increase.
