    Re: The meaning of "I am bumping it in case anybody else can"

    It means the member (in this case 5jj) is adding a new response to your question so that it moves back to the beginning of the list of threads. He is bumping/knocking it to the front of the forum. "Bumping" is a common term on the internet for when someone does this.
