All Threads that remain active for a long time will develop into something different than they originally started out as.
Much of the initial info is still pertinent. The instructional guidance still relevant and correct.
Those who just read something on a DIY Forum, and then start an involved project without first enquiring as to receiving clarification or a re-issue of updated information from the Thread's Author take upon themselves the risks of such actions, and therein possibility of failure.
For example, so very often, posts appear from all over about the "Red Oxide" addition to MMud. Several dozen replies have addressed the fact that it was a "Early LCD oriented" additive, and that for over 18 months, has been dropped as a recommended part of ANY equation. But the majority of posts were "Asking" if it was valid, not saying, "I read about -such & such- and went out and bought everything and had it mixed. Was I correct?" Sadly, a few exceptions to that rule have occurred.
You seem to think that to just start another thread and re-issue detailed instructions is something that just happens. Nope. That only applies to requests like yours. Those come easy. Some might have such time to do so. I often do not. Nor do I ask others to do so, but at times, some industrious Soul does exactly that because he sees a need and steps up to the Plate for a swing. (Bless 'em!) All it requires for such as you is to post up a plea for help or clarification on any point not clear, and do the rest of the "looking" yourself. "DIY" is exactly that. You are just fortunate enough that others did the initial brainstorming and prototypical samples or full size representations for you.
Otherwise, you just might not have anything to consider worthy of attempting, and most certainly, nothing to complain about as to being too much to digest.
This is not to be considered a "beratement" of your posted opinion, but just as mentioned above, a "clarification" of what is to be expected of both a DIY application's creator, and those who aspire to duplicate the method in question and hopefully, achieve the desired results.
You'll be hard pressed to find a single person on this Forum that will say they were refused additional help from MMan after posting a civil missive, or sending a PM or Email requesting such. That's all it takes. Really.
This thread doesn't disappear because I "Bump it", but because so many find it doing "AVS Searches" using Keywords pertaining to it and then post. And that occurs because a lot of people want to "paint a screen" that they have read works very well. Yet I and others always point out that this application (SM/MM) is not so very easy, that there are other alternatives, and that the instructions contained within should be followed "to a Tee", not adulterated or changed.
Those who do not take the advice above and fail to "ask first" before trying any complicated or involved DIY application must always bear the brunt of any disappointment. "DIY" means DIY, but it doesn't mean FIOFY (Figure it out for yourself.) That is why Threads such as this one exist, and should not be closed EVER as long as those seeking such guidance continue to look/ask for it.
Now then, what specifically do you need help with?
