LOL of course you do.  And of course you have taken the time and effort to become as close to an 
expert in Access as they come, plus getting there in C# plus build and maintain Virtual Machines in 
Hyper-V plus build and maintain two server systems to host those SQL Servers and VMs plus build and 
maintain an UnRaid server to provide near-line backup plus build and maintain a half dozen Hamachi 
VPNs coming in to your servers plus maintain SQL Server Express backends on each of those networks 
plus write custom Access FEs to come in over those networks to hit those SQL Servers, and give away 
(pro-bono) those Access FEs and the networks and the SQL Server Express instances to four different 
non-profits plus build and maintain Windows Media Center machines for the home plus maintain a total 
of 11 total machines in your home / office plus ...

Oh yea, take the time to become an expert in SQL Server arcane asininities...

Blame who for what shortcomings?  I mean it isn't like I don't have any shortcomings of course.  I 
don't do well in medicine or nuclear physics or ... hell about a billion things including hmmm... 
arcane SQL Server asininities...

So do you feel like I am I blaming you for some of my shortcomings?  The closest I come is grousing 
about SQL Server arcane asininities which Microsoft doesn't bother to address...

 >    You're right, but I shake my head because you don't care to learn

LOL Of course you do.  Actually I don't care to learn what I don't absolutely have to learn because 
I am just a little busy.  I didn't mention that I also spend about 6 hours a week volunteering in 
the prison near my home, or that in 2003 I adopted two babies so I am now a dad of two elementary 
school kids.  Or that my daughter has many different moderate disabilities caused by 7q11.23 
Duplication syndrome:


And yes we took Allie to the University of Louiville to enroll her in this study, and as a result of 
her disabilities I spend many hours attending IEPs at the school making sure that she gets what she 
needs and deserves out of a school system which is geared towards shuffling people with disabilities 
off into a closet somewhere.  I also didn't mention the weekend every month for eight months that my 
wife and I spent training to be advocates for people with disabilities:


So yea, I would much prefer a few more wizards to help me out, but given what I do in an average day 
I pretty much learn what I have to.  For some reason arcane SQL Server asininities aren't real high 
on my list of things I want to spend my time on, though I do understand that there is nothing you 
would rather do.

To each his own I suppose.

 >    You're right, but I shake my head because you don't care to learn

LOL Of course you do.  And I shake my head because you think you have the right to decide what I 
should make a priority on my life.

Thanks for the tip by the way.
