    Dear Ragnar,
    I don't understand your NO reaction politic ; I told you I want to refund you totally because you are unhappy but you don't give any sign of life ; why.
    I like to work in honesty with my clients because before it is a business it first a passion I share with people all around the world for an Art who is still unknown.
    I wish you a nice evening and hope you will tell me your intentions so I can proceed further.
    Kindest regards,
    Olivier
