"i expect well thought-out responses to my questions, as i have usually exhausted my searching skills before i ask."

I have the utmost respect for those who take the time to think about and research their questions before presenting them here. My original post was mainly lamenting those others who, in effect, say, "I am responsible for doing X; how do I do it?", rather than some variation of "I am responsible for doing X; I've tried Y, but it isn't working. What am I doing wrong?"


You can give a man a fish and feed him for a day ...
Or, you can
teach him to fish and feed him for a lifetime
