David,

This is off topic, but you always are a help. Your
thoughtful assistance on this discussion group either directly
resolves issues I'm
having with Lift, or leads me to rethink my strategy and explore new
avenues
I haven't thought of. At the very least, you force me to reframe many
of my
questions, so they can be answered.

Many times, I've thought of abandoning Lift for "safer" harbors, but
the help
from you and all on this group brings me back to the fold. I've still
got lots to
learn.

Glenn
