The first cement board tilebacker turned up around 1970, don't remember what it was. Wonderboard came along about 1975 and Durock eight (or so) years later.

That doesn't really make sense, go back and read the question.

Rusty about two hours ago John Rocks raced in here and dropped seven or eight bombs in rapid succession then went away. Of course he is responding to mostly out of date threads.

Probably doesn't realize the posts have dates on them.

And you are correct. His reply has nothing to do with the reason for the thread to begin with.

One of the threads he was pushing a product on, has been deleted, I think.
