    frumpy,

    Thank Eddy from TeamFastEddy.com for writing the tutorial, all I did was post it. I've gone ahead and made a new thread with all the current tutorials and stickied it.

    If anyone here would like to add a review or tutorial please let me know and we'll be glad to post it for you!
