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.

And you may want to adjust your browsers font settings. The choice
of font suggests that you must be extremely short-sighted (or have
no taste what so ever) - I adjusted it to make it more palatable to
the normal eye.
