try providing enough code for people to reproduce the problem & you may
get some assistance although i suspect many posters may believe you to be
a previous poster (also called Nicos) who was a disaster looking for
somewhere to happen, if that is not you then I would also suggest you try
"Free markets select for winning solutions."
