Thanks for the prompt, Dirk. I'm now going to think about the shortest possible question that makes sense challenge (as suggested earlier in the thread) for next month :D

Fair warning, Dirk:

I shall be asking Tom the same question again next month. I'll put the question first this time. His comment on my question was in reply to my preamble comment, but he never did actually answer my question.

I'm just as guilty as everyone else when it comes to adding "fluff" in my questions. I shall endeavour to just ask a question next month or the month after. THANKS for letting us know, Dirk.

I have to admit, Methinks I fluff too much. I will cut it out on my next question.

Good little Members of Tom. I think maybe now you are finally beginning to understand exactly what Tom wants there. Haven't had to "threaten" a questioner in days now. Makes my life so much easier. Dirk is very grateful. :mrgreen:

And like Gold Usher suggested. State your question first, then if you feel you need to concisely explain or comment on it, please do that second.

Best,
Dirk :ugeek:

PA, where are your questions again?

I don't seem to be having very much luck with mine for the past 2 months. :cry:

I'm afraid that with me, it will be "three strikes and you're out!" ;)
