37 I installed it and I think it will do what I want.  I just need to
38 figure out the details of how to make it get there.  Based on the
39 description, it seems to be the best one yet.   Now to head over to
40 youtube and see some tips and tricks.  ;-)  I might add, one website
41 that was really bad seems to be a lot better.  Time will tell tho.
43 Thanks.
