My apologies to everyone. I posted a message that I was about to close this thread to further posts, and then I accidentally deleted the thread while trying to close it. I had not previously closed a thread since the forum interface changed and I simply chose the wrong option. Unfortunately, there was no "undo" once I hit the button.
The thread was going in circles and we moderators had agreed to mark it closed but leave it on the forum. Our intent in closing it was not a reflection on the original poster or any of the replies as the thread stood.
Again, I apologize to everyone for my error in deleting the thread.
