Since @Kedreeva hasn't done anything with this thread in over six years I think the moderators should probably delete it.
They won't delete it just because it's old and not updated.:idunno

Zero useful information in this thread. Kedreeva meant to use it for a teaching tool but there has been no discussion or any useful information disseminated in the last six years that would make it valuable for a Stickies learning tool.
