Hi, Not a clue about your real problem. I just had to respond: How can you even DREAM of paying for something like that out of your own pocket? Big guy wants the job done - big guy pays. Judging by your contributions to the list over the years, I think your employer should cherish you and respect your judgment enough to do that!
