Well Kevin I can say this is a community with some very fine folks. I 
can't say what happen to Chris as I wasn't there, but to this day you 
still have not followed through on the questions and request I made to 
you. In fact I think you have simply just ignored me. Most of us and 
especially those I know very well are very helpful and open to folks 
until they start playing games. I again don't know what happen to Chris, 
but Chris maybe step back a minute and then give it another shot.

Best of luck,
