42. Thank you. Please feel free to take the information and make an OP
No need to give me any credit (I saw a thread locked and disappeared when someone did that yesterday, don't know why that happened, not sure if it was the repost or the intent).

For my own reasons, I am not much up to battling on the board or to putting up with the attitudes.

I read and lurk and if something catches my attention, I'll post.

If you do make an OP you may want to include this info.
