The link didn't work until i delete the full stop.  I generally
ignore normal rules of grammar and such-like when handing out url
or email addresses.    2 lines were a bit dodgy "He shall take
over his father’s car repair shop in the future." It just looks
likely to cause problems and is "tempting fate".  If i wrote
something like that the poor kid would probably get knocked down
by a double-decker bus within a week and i'd be blaming myself for

Here I am somehow at a loss, how I should interpret it, sorry ... :( 
What do you mean with the sentence "If I wrote something like that 
the poor kid..."? Why should it "get knocked down by a double-decker 

Also it looks wrong nowadays.  I think now it would be
more normal to see "will" or "hopes to" but never "shall" and i
don't really know why not.  Sometimes you just have to try it and
leave it to other people to correct if there really is any weird
unknowable problem with it.  The aim is "release early and release
often" and NOT perfection 100% of the time.  Perfection seems to
evolve later.

I hope so ... ;)
Anyway, i think you have solved the problem

Maybe ... ;)
