      Hi All,

      Hey, this has become a really cool chain :-). Thanks so much for all your
      answers. I have only had time to thoroughly read the first few, then skimmed
      the rest (sorry for being a bad thread host).

      This is very valuable to me and I will comb it for more juice later. For
      now, I am grateful for your help.

      I will have further questions or kudos when I get a change to digest it
      (probably next week)

      Bonne Weekende, toute le monde,
