You're right to assume that I haven't checked the archives.  I should as 
I might find ideas not discussed here.  However, it has been fun and 
encouraging discussing the subject and listening to ideas and opinions, 
even if they have been expressed before.  From the number of responses, 
I think there is enough interest to go forward and, based on the last 
few days of discussion, I believe we have a solution to most issues.
