Because we don't like this kind of attitude.
It's been 90 minutes for crying out loud

You can still use your OS with 640 by 480.
You can't, however, demand short term help from people who are doing this in their free time - and as a hobby, so to say.
...well - demand you can, but...that's about it.
I don't know where in the world you are - not all the people in the world live in the same timezone as you are - many are asleep just now.

All the best!

which is why I would like the Forum to insist that a users location is stated within the screen on the left of these posts.

I don't wish to speak or even suspect ill of anyone but the OP with the attitude is starting to sound very much like a troll. I recently had a long, tedious and very unsatisfactory encounter on an earlier thread that he started. You can read it here and draw your own conclusions:http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...r-help-735961/
At the very least a few lessons in courtesy would not be out of order.
cheers,
jdk
