 You got it right, everything is fine! :)

 Regards,
 Maksa 

PS (Maksa is a nickname that's been steadily dragging in my male line of the
family for the past 5 generations). Only my mother used to call me "Milan"
when I did something very, very wrong. Which was quite often when I was a
kid. I am fully aware that is infinitely more trivia about me that you ever
wanted to know.
