All perfectly valid points Greg. I don't know if theres a first language 
barrier or what, but the OP has not been forthcoming with answers to the 
lists questions. I don't see the need for secrecy when the list needs 
valid data to make a decent guess, copied and pasted to here from the 
terminal the OP is using to do whatever the OP is actually doing.

To the OP, show code, or it didn't happen is one way to look at it.

None of us are clairvoyant enough to have a crystal ball.
