 If you just ponder on what I wrote you'll realize that I didn't say
anything like that.

 Once again we're here
 - As I see it you're assuming things - getting quite irritated from your
 - and I'm wondering whether I write in English or not.

 One of the reasons I'm here is 'learning' - If I had an attitude of "I'm
not wrong" without ever considering anything else... wouldn't bring me
anywhere else than to the very spot where I am today.

 My previous response was nothing else than an attempt to bring some
insight. Despite the 'rude' and 'clueless' stuff in the initial posting,
there _could_ be possible _positive_ threads to pick up from it. That's the
essence of why I commented on it.

 I'm been hacking on keyboards since the early eighties - in the process
I've learn't one big thing:  I'm not 'perfect'... ;-)  I guess I won't ever
