hi again edge!
i think that many of the members on here have given you awesome answers. yes, it seems as though some added a little sprinkle of "mean" to theirs :lol:, but all in all, most of them are right. it sucks when people aren't all nice and fluffy about it, but i would try to take it all as constructive criticism. take the positive out of each reply. reality isn't nice and fluffy anyway .
yes, they are blunt, but that is what will probably help you in the future. i'm pretty sure some people have lost their zest for a positive personality, but after reading the replies, i can assure you that even some of the people who have attempted to rip me a new one are pretty intelligent. not everyone can be a batch of baked goodies.
the comment about the text speak is correct. although i am not attempting to misdirect your post, you're too smart to type like that. it doesn't necessarily ruin my day, but i can understand why it was pointed out. you are welcome to type however you like, but i'm sure text code is a poor reflection of you as a sharp human being :).
hopefully you were able to take the information from the replies in this post and use them to conjure up some useful ideas/plans. good luck to you.
