Dave_J, are u and the Divine Miss N intimately acquainted then?

Yes, yes. I speak of Necessity. The mother of Invention. Well done sir, and please remember her to me the next time you may meet.

(I can always use a sprinkle or two of the Magyver Magic for those inauspicious moments whenever they may arise.)

Let me ride 'til I croak.
