      I'm looking forward to when it's fixed, Jeff. This will be such an effective tool for me! And easy to use. I've tried to do this before, but it never worked so well... the functionality you've got going there now, with a bit more documentation, will be freaking awesome!!

      This most recent version seems to occasionally have errors when certain

      modifications to that just yet.
