I am putting this at the end of the thread (well, maybe anyway) so it is in a more prominent position.
THIS (see below) was a shitty comment on my part. It was bad tempered, bitchy and arrogant, as well as a few other things that don't reflect well on me at all. I was rather ashamed when I re-read it, albeit too late.
I have apologised to the lady but it would have no value at all if I didn't do it as publicly as I had made the comment in the first place, so here goes.
No amount of frustration can justify such rudeness and I am truly sorry.
The term 'd***h**d' was previously mentioned on this thread (by me, in the same moment of grumpiness). So that everyone knows, in the light of what is quoted below, I am applying it to myself as well.

Let me handle the plotting and in exchange I promise not to tell you how to sail your boat.
