Chris, Alex, Gentlemen:

Thank you for your generosity.  Let me learn a little bit more and it 
will give me the confidence to ask stupid questions. :) Anyone in here 
would like to engage in a conference call type group study / chat, 
please let me know.   I have a VoIP server to which all of us could 
connect to easily.

Thank you!
Reza.
