Ok, I appreciate that, but is very frustrating, when an op comes along
with a similar problem, they get asked questions, given help, and none
of this 'we help you because we can, and not because we have to
attitude, I asked a question, the same as the op, I do feel like I am
being pushed away. Esecially since a similar question is being put
forward. Why are you bringing that up. What is the difference between
the op asking a quesiton and me asking a question.
