The stupid is becoming strong on this list, Luke. I sense another one
of those challenges of the "please help me with hardly any info" type.
The blob above is barely readable.

Since my crystal ball is broken here is a very short guide to getting
help. This is directed to ALL OF YOU who keep sending these annoying
"please help" messages I usually ignore.


* increase readability of your text;
* Detail to us what you tried to do but this time include real world
  examples/error messages/etc.
* read the long guide to getting help here:

Or don't follow these guidelines and risk seeing your question
disappear into the archives without ever being solved. I could not
possibly care less.
