There is a story behind this post. First, it is a really awaited post, especially for the friends who visits and share ideas with CBox. Second, I need to give credits for two contributors, Caetano Rodrigues, which is the friend who sent this perfect copy to Loronixers, second, Cesar Saldanha, who sent first, but I did not make it since this record was on Caetano list of future contributions. Thanks Cesar. Thanks Caetano.
