Thanks for the great tips. One thing I just learned, is if it's not working,go away and do something else for a bit. Then come back to it. It sometimes helps.

I would add the "oh it is just about mid-night so just one more minute and I'll get this fixed" "Oh.... s$#@ what did I just do" :shock:

Yup! Spent about twenty minutes at the end of the evening last night trying to put a screw into a hole, couldn't get it started. Thought it might have been cross threaded. Turns out the hole wasn't threaded at all, it was the wrong one, the correct one was just a wee bit over there.
When I figured it out, I downed tools and went to bed, very chagrined.
