That's a little harsh, Earnie.  This was a direct request to a query.
It's actually of some interest to us here, too, since if MKS can do
this that means we can too.

As long as the discussion doesn't degenerate into a long discussion on
how to set up MKS or something, then I have no problem with this.

In fact, if someone wants to purchase this and let us know how they
managed this feat, I'd be interested in hearing about that.
