    I can't recall a thread that's given less information, but I suppose it's possible. You may want to consider the FAQ stuck at the top of this forum and post back. That would help us flesh things out. Good Luck.

    I second that. Brother @B0B and Brother Stephen at @OWNORDISOWN have some great reviews on this product.
    Here's what I had to say about it. (I'm a turdbook hater and yet I still own one, so take that for what it is worth.)
