  5. Good Morning m4dscientist, I see that you have recently registered and I welcome you to our forums. True we get plenty of views on our threads and reading them are very helpful. Not everyone replies to the threads for various reasons, and I don't think that needs any explanation. Like any forum, everyone who feels they can help do so, but to think we do not care is an unfair assesment. After only 4 posts I believe you are not giving DF a chance. Look around read posts from other members, you may find the answers you are looking for. Warmly, LGJ
