Hi Kris!

Not yet, but I still have it saved in my Amazon cart and plan on buying it when my finances are right! ☺

As for more insight into the FA-19-0035 doc, I couldn’t provide anything there, but I did find the attached that seemed helpful imo. I emailed it to you on August 8th as well; not sure if you got that email.

Hope it helps and hope all is well!
