If you take a close look at the text above you should be able to read the 
following text: * can't find it at Mudela*, (of course I meant *Mutopia*) 
however I search I can't find it there.

I am very well informed about notation software on the market, I do not 
consider myself beeing *fooled* by any of them.

Obviously I could have been better prepared before I sent my message in the 
first place, but my intention was only to make sure that the Mutopia file was 
OK, I couldn't even imagine that I would be *bothering* anyone by doing so.
You just make me uncomfortable by nagging and picking on me, if you don't 
like newcomers around here then you can just tell me straight out buzz off. 
In your first reply to my mail you said:

the .ps file output, or the address to the page keeping it.

Have fun!
