-1 for "urgent priority". – Jukka Suomela May 26 '11 at 8:40
Well, it was a genuine urgency. I hoped you could sympathise, we all have these moments, realising something is wrong only after careful inspection in the last hours leading up to a deadline. I don't apologise for it. – ptrcao May 26 '11 at 8:42
Sure, but asking for quick answers does not really help. – Jukka Suomela May 26 '11 at 8:49
I've removed the "urgent" label from the title now. – ptrcao May 26 '11 at 8:52
Thanks for your understanding. – ptrcao May 26 '11 at 8:54
