Ah well, sorry for over reacting then, I might be a tad touchy today ;-)

I guess a little flattery once in a blue moon can't hurt ;-)

You are way too kind... my English is quite poor, vocabulary wise...
it's just that e-mail communication makes it easier to hide, as you can
take the time to work around words you don't master, and read others 10
times, and consult the dictionary, until you get it. But you can't do
that in real life discussions, so....
...my spoken English (both understanding and speaking) sadly is a
disaster... can't handle a normal phone conversation (the most difficult
exercise you can conceive).
So, thank you god (or whoever) for inventing e-mails...
