sorry for my last post, right after I sent it i realised what was wrong and fixed it.

Thank you for all the help.  i am sorry for the double post, basically what happened was in the past the archives had a major spam problem and i had to post ultiple times to get a responce.  if i didnt hear back in 2 or 3 days it usually mean that my post had been lost in the pile of spam.

Jay, in the line above, you've set the config file to the value
'contact', which is why your error message is mentioning this file. If
you never created it, then that's the problem. For a reference, read
the 'CONFIGURATION FILES' section of the README (starting at line
401).
