Well, that particular poster has some issues <g> Even though he'd
already received the same advice several times before, it
wasn't until Mandy Shaw posted the data that he got all
warm and fuzzy ... but I digress <g>

Technically, it shouldn't be an issue, As (the debate rages on) there
is in fact a "pinned" and Titled FAQ Topic which stays right at
