Benhacker cool

Very good and thanks for posting it. It helps sometimes just to look at the time lines for the Terminator films to help make it just that bit more clearer. I know some people can't get their head round it. That must of took some time to do. Once again, thanks, I enjoyed reading that. Anything about the Terminator films is always a good way to start the day. Well for me it is.
