wpsjr, I'm going to repeat myself here, please just post comments. The person can accept your answer later if they feel it is worthy. By answering the you don't do anyone any good, so please stop already.  You've been here long enough to see how the system works.  Your answer may be the best but its up to the person asking the question.  So just post a comment like everyone else and be on your way.  Cuz damn its annoying.
