That's your problem. You cant change it. You have to buy a new one.

Thanks a bunch Gas Man

The FAQ was quite informative, and actually contained a lot of the information I was taught in the MSF program recently. Being my first post, but not my first time on a forum, I'm reading all the "stickies" "announcements" and rules prior to popping out an uber-noob post that everyone can just point to another thread and laugh at me for

Proper forum ettiquette

Anyhow, the FAQ also had some information that I was not taught in the MSF program, and for this, I thank you.

I look forward to spending some down-time on the forum.....

See ya
