Only problem with your reply is this post has a question for the title to get you to look at the post, then it becomes a bit of a tutorial, doesn't it? The other reference truly is a question, and probably deserves this kind of response. I know, I know - this is "Caption This" day and everyone that failed to get a GA on that wants to become a comedian.
