Good idea above. Maybe I'll look at this after I get things settle
down and working for the most part.

I'd be willing to help with putting the workarounds in to some nice,
easy to following documentation. It's just that all the workarounds
are so disorganized and what originally worked, doesn't work now and
there is a new workaround to replace the original work around. So, by
the time I have a working system I have no idea what I actually did
that really got the system working.
