Okay, so I've finally figured out that when I post in what could be called a "Newbie's" thread, that they don't seem to notice the URLs in my signature.

So I've gone from this;

--Did you find this post helpful? Don't forget to let me know by clicking yes or no! (Or click the "scales" icon under my name)

CIDR to Netmask conversion with Python (convert short netmask to long, dotted format)
