    Don't be silly. Most of us are very glad you posted that. It is good information to put out there. And if Phyliss can get past name calling and offer specifics and an constructive alternative, even better!

    Getback,
    We are glad that you posted that, please don't stop posting good info since we all may need that input to resolve a problem or just to find out more about what we are doing....
    Don't even think for a moment that you caused any uproar, mate, if anyone did it was the sort of negative post that was displayed by one of the inmates. Instead of being constructive the post was derogatory and not in keeping with the spirit of the forum which is what caused the ripple of comments in regards to that post.
    Forums are kind of self policing, and this thread is a good example of how that works.
    Keep on posting the good stuff, it's gonna help someone somewhere figure out an answer to their problem or just add to the general pool of knowledge that we all draw on in times of puzzlement.

    Is a tractor the opposite of a detractor? If so I think there are more tractors here than detractors.
    I be a tractor...all tractors raise their hand.

    I do appreciate the more positive comments from the vast majority. Had a pretty crap day thinking about this whole thing and was contemplating on whether or not I should have even sent the info to GetBack. After reading the more positive comments though I think I'll just leave it. People need to realize that the formula is a great starting point and we've installed hundreds of outfits with this formula and it does work very well and saves a lot of time with the setting and resetting of things. So take it for what it is and work with it if you wish, just trying to help, not horn blow. Thanks guys

    The first one is allmost completely a translation of a german booklet, as you must have understood. The second one is in Dutch, but the pics are quite self-explainatory, after you have read the first link, I think. Formulas used in both booklets are pretty much the same and can be used as a basic "guideline".

    You should post them in the sticky thread so they stay on top. This thread will drop off the forum eventually.
