Norm - despite what it says in the OP's post, that isn't actually what he was asking.
See this post for what was actually needed.

Gopal - this is a perfect example of why you shouldn't post the same question multiple times.

Its a real art figuring out what some OPs are asking.
Throwing a stupid response at them sometimes gets them to rephrase the question.

I agree. Here's the link:

It's not a secret anymore!
