BJ, by no means were you being ignored; I'm sorry it seemed this way to you, but let me try and explain.
You see, generally on this board if you do not get a response it is because noone has any informed opinions or answers to give on the subject, and would rather not give advice on something they are not familiar with.
Though our advice is free, we who regularly respond to posts hand it out very carefully, because we do not wish to mislead someone into taking on a project which they cannot handle, or with improper guidance.
I had read your post, but the projects you are asking about were ones where I personally did not wish to make comment because I had no good advice to give.
Please understand that if we were to leave replies of "Sorry, I can't help you on this one." to every post we couldn't be of assistance with, that's all this board would be filled with.
