 IMO you probably did better than average as a first post - I haven't
used those programmers/parts, but you gave enough info that if I knew
'em well, I probably wouldn't have to spend a couple days asking probing
questions before I knew enough to help!  <G>  That really helps motivate
people to help (Lower investment of their time & effort, as you're doing
your part, so to speak.)

 Only thing I can think of that you might add, is to pass along a URL
pointing to your source code, so those interested in looking at it can
take a look (Best not to just push that to all 1800ish list members by
default; you did well!)

 Dan C's points look good to me, as a start, if that isn't it maybe pop
your code up on your web pages & post the URL?
