      Atauro is the best coder i have ever seen. He knows his Visual Basic codes just like putting a blind fold on with his hands tied behind his back and trying to walk straight. I had an error come up in my program so i showed him on msn and right away just by looking at the code he told me what was wrong. I would recommend him to everybody.
