Yes, now that you mention this, the changes did cross my mind, but I didn't 
think about it too much except that I now remember I did double-check a few 
times to see if it was multi-select or not, etc.

Yeah, it took me 2 or 3 times before I actually got from start to finish 
due to interruptions also. Good points, Richard. I wonder if it could be 
streamlined a bit. I don't know what was behind the reasoning for all the 
questions, so I can't begin to say what to cut and what's absolutely necessary.
