I find your choice of words, like pathetic & impossible to be inappropriate for
this post.  Have you made any financial contributions to the individuals that
take their personal time to code this software?  Time where they could be doing
other activities (visiting with family & friends, doing personal activities,
etc) If not then maybe you should consider being a little more gracious to
their hard work and the efforts they put in.  This software is free and led by
a volunteer group that should be supported by an understanding, considerate
community. A community that supports each other and shares ideas respectfully
when they are needed and become available.  I personally shared with you a
solution for your needs and frankly next time I'll let someone else volunteer.
