Hi bumpkin - just open a new tab in your browser and then find the page for the forum thread you are looking for. You will still have the current thread open where you are posting the reply. You could even open another instance of your browser; but do not close the current one you are viewing.

I hope you don't mind but I saw your request just now and have posted the link as you requested.
