Hey man,

I don't want spoon feed.

Although I'm new I made the project stable and getting closer to solution combining all references from Internet. I just asked help not rebuke..! Just ignore if you doesn't concern with this..! Such warnings I had when i subscribed to mailing list that "Ignore mails that doesn't concern you". It's regrettable for my posts here. But mailing lists are maintained to share and solve problems not to finger each other.
