Wonderful news, your remedy worked like a charm. First attempt
wasn't real good, so I followed your extra advice and Googled away like
mad (OK, it was only one search, but that's not the point). A quick

solidarity; feeding the hungry; clothing the nekkid; halting global
warming; carrying the human race to new planets and into interstellar
space!!! Geez... those developers had better get to work!!!
