Yes ok. I will. But if you are recommending something to someone you 
should usually do a quick check to see that is sort of what their after.
Like if they said text-based you could just double check it is text based.

I might be wrong, but sorry again if my message sounded slightly angry or 
I wasn't annoyed just a bit disapointed that you have all these ideas 
which I will follow next time. (thanks) but you ended up recommending 
something completely oposite to what I wanted.

Thanks anyway and I'll use this pebroc program and if that doesn't work 
then I'll try something else from the repo as you suggested several times.
