You answered your own question in under a minute? – Daniel Beck Jan 9 '11 at 19:38
@Daniel - Answering your own questions is quite OK. If you spend ages figuring something out, why not share it? – Nifle Jan 9 '11 at 20:04
@Nifle I know. I was just wondering, it's such an uncommon sight. – Daniel Beck Jan 9 '11 at 20:11
@Daniel - what's wrong with doing that? I saw lots of other people with similar issues on the web and thought I'd post my solution here due to it being one of the better tech support sites on the web. – adolf garlic Jan 10 '11 at 8:54
@adolf Nothing's wrong with it. As I wrote above, it's very uncommon (one user posting a question and its answer essentially simultaneously), so I was just surprised. – Daniel Beck Jan 10 '11 at 9:01
