<br>&gt; are too many!&nbsp;&nbsp;I have followed thread after thread and keep hiting new<br>&gt; problems!&nbsp;&nbsp;What the H! Also, I am not a newbe! compile, compile,<br>&gt; compile..... This is crazy!!<br><br>Perhaps you are not a native English speaker, but your analogy is poorly

<br>list without including any relevant information so that people can<br>actually help you.<br><br>Oh well, don&#39;t let the door hit you on the way out :)<br><br>Sean<br><br>PS: if you don&#39;t want to look like a newbie, at least learn how to
