Looking back at the thread, I do feel I may have misread what your
problem was - I don't know if that was because I didn't read it
closely enough or because your description was not clear enough - I
suspect it was a combination of both. The main thing which prompted me
to respond was that it was obvious you had attempted to find a
solution and that is exactly the type of poster we want to encourage,
so I thought I'd suggest a couple of possible things to check out and
some warnings regarding issues you may not have been aware of.
I hope this experience does not discourage you from using this
resource as its important and helps build up a valuable archive of
information others can use. I hope we will see you on this list again!
