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. Petter -- "I'm ionized" "Are you sure?" "I'm positive."
