Errr, sorry if it seems dopey, but what does this "bump" mean? I keep coming across it in this and other forums and cant make out what it stands for....

It gets it back to the centre of attention,so more people can help you.
As this post gets older and no one replies, it falls down the pecking order...by typing "Bump" and posting it sticks it back in the top bracket that's all it is.

O I see! Thank you! Wonder why they chose "bump" though....funny sort of choice if you ask me.....then again, when was there any logic behind naming pc related stuff!
Thanks again
(great screen name btw)

Another one is.... "added to my postings" as this 'bumps' it back to the top and adds it to your 'my postings' link so the thread can be found again easily.

bump stands for Bring Up My Post.
