It is obvious you made some attempts to find a solution with search of
list, reading the FAQ and so forth. On this list, that *should* prevent
any flames. Of course, those who already know the answer and may have
fallen out of bed may make some remark that seems a little critical, but
you can/should ignore them since you made (what appears to be)
reasonable attempts to locate the answer before posting.

This list is working hard to be a cordial place; sometimes it is difficult
when there are folks who won't make the effort you have made and there are
those who's patience has been exhausted by those types.

My opinion.
