Nice solution Chris'ssister! :-) Your question and the corresponding answers provide a decent tool. :-)

Okay. No problems. :-) Generally, when people downvote, and the OP asks the reason, it is expected that the person who downvoted leave a comment about it. And hence, my assumption.

Added the explanation. I hope its correct.

A few reasons 1. It gives me oppurtunity to verify that the solution is indeed correct. (I self study, so even though I get an answer and I am pretty sure about it, there is no real way to verify the solution completely.) 2. It allows probably other people to offer me better solutions. 3. I can do so on a blog, but then it might not get the same attention on the blog. 4. MSE's editing capabilities are better than almost all other blogging software I have found.

Is the downvote because of self-answering?
