I hope I'm answering this properly. After receiving no further replies I felt I should start a different thread for the answers I didn't get since it had been 3 weeks. I'm not sure what else you mean by consolidating to one thread. I asked my remaining questions in one thread. Perhaps you could clarify a bit?
I do hope I'm writing back properly, as it didn't give me an option to reply to you individually that I'm aware of.
