The only reason I didn't directly help the OP was because the code was
misformatted and it was necessary to request that it be reposted.
Perhaps I should have been clearer in saying "Please repost your code
with correct formatting", but there wasn't much else I could have
done.

Or maybe I should have just filtered everything from Google Groups
into the bit bucket, because responding just creates threads like
this. Do you honestly think that would be better? No response at all
if the post comes from GG?
