look, i have solved this problem. and YOU felt the need to make a snarky comment after the fact. this is the very reason i'm always wary about going onto forums. because people like you have some need to feel superior. guess what, in this instance you ARE superior with knowledge. that's why i came here to ask people for help. in the future please try to remember that some people haven't been doing this for very long, or in my particular case at all. try to be helpful and not sarcastic. i'm not trying to impress anyone, i'm just trying to figure something out.
please don't make this some back and forth thread about who gets the last word. i consider this a dead issue. there is nothing more to say here.
