    Sigh, I deleted your previous thread on this question: you cannot delete your own threads. You can request for deletion if you want, but that will probably only happen if no one has responded to it.

    And no, this forum is not the right place to ask this question.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    laserlight, maybe you need to suspend etricity's ability to post, to discourage him/her repeatedly creating threads asking how to delete an old thread
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    If I seem grumpy or unhelpful in reply to you, or tell you you need to demonstrate more effort before you can expect help, it is likely you deserve it. Suck it up, Buttercup, and read this, this, and this before posting again.
