Hi..

I don't know what this phrase means. can anyone make it easier for me?

Thanks a lot.

You didn't trouble me but when you ask an open question like that I don't know what you need explaining—every word or just a few. Please ask specific questions if you can.

And since you "got it", why don't you share your knowledge with other users?

Let me save you the trouble:
