    I have allowed your thread to appear, as it contains information which could be useful to some members - especially in the full article to which you have linked. However, you put in two links to the same site (identical links), which is contrary to forum policy. Please do not do this again. Thank you for your cooperation.

    Thank You. The article was a bit long hence with a shorter version I pasted a link along so that whoever is interested can read the full version there.

    And yes, I will be careful with the identical links in future.

    Thanks again for your cooperation.
