Dear Jonas,

I am sorry I wasted your time.  I found it in plasmoids
a whle ago, but didn't know how to show it fixed.  I feel pretty stupid 
because I looked there before and must have read right over it.  I can't 
figure it out.  I seem to waste a lot of people's time anymore.  Thanks 
for your kindness and patience.
