Hi, Craig,

I know it’s a long list, after I posted it, I got regreted. It’s a quite irresponsible behavior, isn’t it. It seemed I threw out a lot of questions without via digestion. Thanks for your reply, I’ll try to read and understand them again and again, if I still have some questions, I’ll e-mail you. Thanks again.

Have a nice day,
