I was concerned about this, too, and the original posting on the mini 9 here has over 100 pages, so the link to the thread is not at all helpful. However, as always GIYF, and I simply cut and pasted the heading of this thread into google and came up with a couple of useful links:

Good luck and please report back how you get on
