I have a different recollection of proceedings...
If I remember, I posted on an oldish thread I'd created and had not touched since about this time last year. It was after winter had finished I bumped the thread again. I didn't get a reply, and said that because nobody seemed to give a fat rat's about it, there wasn't much point continuing posting. Which at the time seemed reasonable, after all, no point banging your head against a wall. I came back a while later, and someone had replied and I begged pardon. I don't recall implying anything about expert advice in my 'fat rat's' comment, I suppose I could reread the thread.
But anyway, I apologize, as I said it was something that was important to me, but I can understand that it wasn't to others. I'll leave it at that. Sorry again. I'll get back to not saying anything as I have less chance of saying something foolish that way.
Thanks for all the expert advice that I have received here.
