Nice to see your encouraging remarks. I agree with you that one must try not 
to be abrasive.

Incidently, I have never asked any question about 'unmuting the channels'. 
Jeremy Byron, in his detailed response, had already put me wise on that. I 
do not know where you got this fix on 'unmuting'.

About the manual pages, It was a general remark about these not being very 
user friendly, which is true to quite some extent.

But I said this earlier and I say this again that one should read the 
manuals before coming to the List. That is a lesson for me.

Thanks and Regards
