I think that if you get no replies after a week then that means there is
not enough information in the original message for someone to come up with
an answer. Reposting the exact same message probably won't help - better
perhaps to add some more information such as what you have tried since
then or rephrase the problem, etc.
I'd have to say that this is one of the friendliest lists I've
participated in, so don't be put off by this.
