Is there a way to find a particular post's post number? I only ask because it would be nice to be able to refer someone to a particular post and not just a topic. I know that when you post something it takes you directly to your post using a blah/viewtopic.php?p=POSTNUM#POSTNUM. I would like to be able to find the post number for an older post so I can link to it. It's not displayed by default on the post itself and I'm not particularly sure where to get it.

EDIT: I know it's the name="60636" in the html for this particular post, but I would prefer to not have to sift through the html source everytime I want to find one. ;)

So you can make a link do something like this?

Hover your mouse over the "quote" button of a particular post and look in the status bar to determine the post number. Or, take it one step further and copy the link location, paste it wherever you want to go and, with a little hand-editing, you're good to go.
