Haven't been by in a LOOOONNNGGGG time (too busy building new railways out here!), nice to see many familiar names here.

I have a good reason for asking this question, which I'll come to later. I was always told that you shouldn't lay a refrigerator or freezer on its back, but if you do, you should leave it upright for 24 hours to allow any oil which may have migrated from the compressor to drain back in there. Right, or an Old Wives Tale?
