...which, in this specific case, is a dead end. Maybe that explains why the OP was confused/asking? –  Arjan Dec 17 '11 at 9:32
    
@Arjan - The "master" post in that case was later deleted –  Nick Craver Dec 17 '11 at 9:44

Sure, @Nick, we know that's a different problem. I just wondered if seeing that 404 might be why the OP was asking for a link: maybe the OP did click it, but did not realize that was actually the link that was asked for? (My previous comment was a bit confusing indeed.) –  Arjan Dec 17 '11 at 10:16
    
@Arjan Ah, maybe; I didn't actually click it –  Michael Mrozek Dec 17 '11 at 16:11
