I probably should have given you the points.  Alas.

Thanks.  It doesn't matter much about the points; almost all of the experts here are in the mode of "helping" one another out to solve our customers' problems.  But I wish they made it more apparent how you can split points between or among several experts on a question. Maybe that will change in the future. Currently, here is how it's done:

HOW TO SPLIT POINTS ON EXPERTS-EXCHANGE QUESTIONS
You can split points on questions, however you need the help of Community Support to do so. What you need to do is post a zero point question in the Community Support area by clicking on the link for Community Support near the top left of the Experts-Exchange web page, in the EE Community section.  In the question you need to reference this question number, who you wish to split the points among, and what point values to assign, then Community Support staff will do the rest, normally by reducing the original point value of this question to allow you to post new questions for the other experts.
These questions would be titled points for whomever and paste the question's  url in the comment block so the expert would know what it was about.

I've done that before a couple times, and it is such a hassle.  I sure hope EE changes their structure because their system is more conducive to splitting points than awarding to a single respondent.  I often wonder if more people would rate answers if they didn't have to be bothered with 5 steps to award points.  Of course, I can't keep doing this because I'll run out of points shortly.

Thanks for the help and time.
