 This is out of context to the question posted, but just wanted to point out
 this as a very GOOD example of how to make a post asking for help in
 forums like this.

 A bane of programming forums such as ours is badly posted questions,
 of which we get our good share every month. I don't remember the number
 of times I posted ESR's "how to ask questions the smart way" in this list
 as reply to badly posted questions.

 This is a very good illustration of posting questions the smarter way.
