Well, before you give up, have you tried the advice you have been
given? There should be plenty there to get you started, and several
resources for reading.

It is hard to help when you do not respond about what you have tried
and not, and what has/hasn't worked.

I'm not interested in arguing with you, but have actually tried to
help. If you are not interested in help, there is very little we can do
for you.
