Thanks for your reply... Unfortunately, I cannot truly see your 
suggestions before my eyes..

but then I'm forced to use the self pointer.. I want to conceil it.

hmm Im not sure what you are suggesting here. Are you still making use of 
the self reference? or how would you construct this...

please note that it's my purpose to hide the user from whats really going
