You forgot to quote the part where I said "This approach can be very fragile and is no substitute for proper hooks, to be sure but if you have no other option at least you can get what you need working."  Without that quote it makes my reply look like, well, that I was *recommended* it instead of suggesting it was a consolation prize for when there is no other option.  

Have a little more courtesy, please.
