Well, I've done #2 & 3 & part of # 4. most of this is not user friendly. I'm not sure what went wrong on #4. But my totem (if I had one) would be a turtle/tortoise, terrapin. I never give up.
So I will keep trying. I will now forge ahead to the next few things and hope to be able to make sense of these that are hands on/OJT and not just theoretical ideas that are somewhat difficult to convey real meaning to ambiguous ideas.
