    Regic, you've have enough posts to where I would expect you to have noticed by now that this forum is not about spoon feeding people answers, it's about helping them understand how to GET answers.

    I didn't tell him the answer.... I gave him a link to a place where he could find it himself.

    And if anything I'm being snyde, telling him that the answer can be so easily found by a simple google search. Completely opposite from spoon feeding.
