What lies have you told yourself today?
After reading your post, I told myself that, in response to my initial incorrect reading, I wouldn't really give a poodle to a shark, but upon further reflection, I realized that was just wishful thinking.
Can't seem to find mine on wayback machine or on current site. Did you have to set something up manually?
