There just was another thread around here initiated by Max Power, the
current OP, I do believe; not liking the answer(s) there or unsatisfied
with it(them) for some reason he decided to restart and rephrase (and

though in this case his present Y problem seems to call for the same
response as his X did--or vice-versa).
