Sure, I had no problem to understand, and my first reaction on
Terry's reply was like "why is this needed".

Maybe this is perceived differently by different people,
as I can understand John's POV well as well.
And it happens quite often if you are answering many questions,
that you get bored since you see the same stuff again and again.
At least for my part, I sometimes react less friendly to newbie
questions than I should. When I'm lucky, I read it again
before sending and start over :-)

This should be no problem, and I think this was misreadings/
misunderstandings, and I hope that you all bury the hatchet
and be constructive, again.

a nice weekend to all -- chris
