Please post your thread in only one forum. Posting a single thread in the most relevant forum will make it easier for members to help you and will keep the discussion in one place. This thread is being closed because it is a duplicate.

Closing the original because the dupe is placed more sensibly.

And thanks for the notification - but I'd still appreciate if you
left moderation to the mods.
