Sure, I can answer that no problem. But I'm about to step out at the moment and will return later in the afternoon today. What time do you need this by? If you are okay with getting an answer later in the afternoon, can you please post this question in a new post, and type "For Steve Song" in the title of the post so that I can easily pick it up? Thanks.
