Thanks for your input i had no idea where to start to look for any help
with respect to what more to post, thats why i asked what "what else can
i look for" hoping someone would say look here and or here for clues....
I did not mean any disrespect but i found the remark, a bit more than
terse, but hey everyone one is entitled to their own opinion...
Again thanks to all for your help this list is a very valuable resource...
Have a good one :)
