    @Swtp14 ,
    I noticed you started an identical thread to your first one earlier today, I have merged them for you, so you do not miss what others posted for you earlier today.
    If you are having trouble finding your threads, many members book mark their threads to make them easier to locate.
    How can I find my threads and posts?
