Welcome to the forums, there is a lot of great information and some wonderful people on this site. It has been a great source of support and education in the four years.  D
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Hey Mark -- Welcome
I should have done what u did and introduced myself to the forums -- instead about a month ago after reading the forums as a guest for about a year I joined and jumped right into to the conversation -- without really giving myself a chance to say HI to the people that have been on here for a while and letting them welcome me.  Thank you for showing me the proper way to do it   :)
