    Hi @8cent8 :) I hope you're well.

    Just to make you aware: I've removed the links from your post as they appear to be advertising a product, which goes against our community guidelines. It's perfectly fine to discuss technology and useful tools, but we ask that you don't advertise any specific products here on the community.
