(a) I did say it was a while back (b) I did say .. rudely.. (c) I humbly apologise especially as I've been looking at wots-to-be-done to rewrite and it's huge.
Twas a while back but IIRC it went something like this

Record abc
Oops never record
Ooops do record abc but not def

Until I was so wrapped in knots I could not recover. Eventually I restored that morning's backup, said enough words to get me 500 years in purgetry, wrote my mail and was very grateful for MythWeb.

PS yes :6544
