The beauty of the list is that you ask a question and get a whole slew of different methods of doing 
something, presenting a slew of opportunities to learn new stuff.  When you posted your solution I 
did not attack it as a hangman's noose.  To a hangman, every knot will do the job.  ;)

Your solution does a fine job for the stated task, and apparently (from his comments) your solution 
is about all the OP is able to assimilate anyway.

I just find it sad that a solution other than your own is by definition a hammer.
