Ian, Did you do as suggested by Patchman after your post 3 Oct 2012 23:09 and contact the thread author directly?

Could you also remove your email address from your post, Its against GR guidelines and may get your post reported for review and possibly removed alltogether

There is absolutely no point in putting info on did so two years ago, and it wasn't acknowledged, so it won't be now.

Follow the advice about trying to make direct contact
