Thank you for your informing response. However, I was not merely refering to this single thread. I asked these questions in my own dedicated thread and only got one response. Even though that response was helpful... no further additions to that thread were given any attention whatsoever which is frustrating. I am fully aware that nobody is obligated to respond to my seemingly dumb questions having built and run a very large forum with more that 100,000 threads and 60,000+ members. I understand that but the responses like scorpio-logic before and night train after are uncalled for and are more frustrating that no response at all..
But thank you for trying to explain the situation.
While you have obviously made a name for yourself here and have done some very fine work, I don't appreciate your response and would prefer you kept things like that to yourself.
While everyone here may repect you for your accomplishments, that kind of verbal rederick can only tarnish that reputation in my book. If you have no wisdom to share... don't bother with anything at all. Remember, you were new once too and while it may or may not have come easy to you... some of us have lives and not endless hours at the computer to become an overnight success at this stuff.
Thanks anyway to all... I will try to make better contact at a later time when everyone snaps out of their "holiday mood". Meanwhile I will continue the work I am doing right or wrong.
