    A joke about the need to polish the configuration would have been too obvious? ;)
    Thanks for the review but I'll skip some versions before jumping on that train.
    Too crude for my liking as it is now.

    Darn. You are indeed.
    Sparky is an unlikely name. Unless those Polish got a real fascination for old-school electrocution chairs of course, then it would make perfect sense.

    -note to self; must-read-conclusions.
