I am sorry you feel that way. I think your post was excellent and here's
A. It showed how a rush job was solved and in the end with no harm to

B. It generated a great discussion that I think everyone enjoyed and
C. We found something the A700 was good for (hope Studer is not next to
snipe me). LOL
Really, if you found something I said offensive, I apologize. I learn a
lot from your posts.
