Oh ok. I will take note. I am nothing but grateful to all of you, who take 
your time to help us to improve.
Anyways, I have gone past the 2.7 and I think we could all forget this if 
you don't mind.
I would like to recall my first message, in which bottom I simply asked if 
using sudo will have any impact further in the book and I have already been 
answered enough.

Thanks again to all of you, really.
