Please accept my apologies if I cast doubt on finding a solution to the issue. As I said, Noel has far more experience in this, and many other areas, than I have.

Tuesday might have some updates (normal shedule) or it might not. Post what you observe.
If there is a problem, if being the operative word, Noel is the best resource to resolve it.
