Dear Mauro,

may I also add that top posting a ranty mail is certainly not the best 
way to get people to help you. That is like walking into the shop 
spitting on the floor, demanding immediate service and slamming the door 
on the way out. Funnily I am 100% sure you would not do so in a shop, so 
why do it on the interwebs ?
