Dear all and specially Dom:
For people that are not living in the First world, your hypotesis are
not always true. For example, I am suscribed to this group and I don't
have access on Internet in my computer.
May be Juan is lazy, may be not. You have the decission to not answer

basic questions asked for another people that were answered for you.

Remember, the South exists too.

Best regards.
