Hehehe...oddly enough, I will rarely, if EVER, raise my voice in person. I do speak clearly and pointedly, though.

I prefer to let others do the screaming...and it's always amazing to see folks get quiet to hear someone who ISN'T, which is when you make your points. I refuse to deal with clowns who want to yell, and will just leave the room. If you can't support your point with FACTS, then you need to keep your face-hole shut...but that's just my opinion.

If this is some kind of training course or test being undertaken then please state that also. My response was due to frustration that somebody employed to do a task has to ask how to do so on the internet and does not know how to ask. I only mention a similar employer to say "I know where you're coming from" and to suggest that the naming of an employer on the internet where everything is forever is not a good idea.
I agree with what you're saying..and it *IS* wrong, totally...but we've all seen many of these first-posts where they ignore the forum rules, guidelines, and post "give links for the redhat" or "i need a script", or "how to use cron". They just don't mention their employers.

I do think this is the lied-way-into-job/caught-by-boss scenario...which is why I think that spoon-feeding such folks is a horrible idea. If they can't stand on their own feet, and at least show SOME effort and incentive to learn, then we'll wind up doing their jobs for them, and not getting their paychecks. Help is always good if you're confused or lacking experience....asking something that you can easily look up, and is part of the "basic skills 101" you should have before getting a job isn't.

and I am able to understand what to questioned and what to expect the answer from you guys.
first of i had never used such types of forum before.and somebody is trying to say me that he going to complain about me with my company. thanks for your good good answers.
I really appreciate you guys are very busy and you don't have the time to solve the problem because you guys have time to scokld me. and by the way I got the solution by myself...
thanks you indigenious guys.
I guess treat it like this. If you ask a vague, or very open ended question to people in general, some answers are likely to be "Gee I don't know ...." and then they walk away. Some may say, "I don't know, but have you tried to do a web search?"

A main point here at LQ is to help you to be able to accomplish your intended goals, and attain the knowledge to reach that goal.

The two issues here are (1) that your question may appear to be simple, "just answer it" form, however (2) your question may also be incomplete enough such that if you get a first level of answer, you may ask a bunch of follow-up questions of increasing complexity, in the same form.

Why not look up the topic as suggested in answer #2 and try that first search result? Did you do that? Was there trouble with that?

So while I don't want you to be tainted about LQ I will point out that your question is general, and the topic title is insulting to people.

And I actually don't know the answer for you, however I have seen HMW on the forums a lot and trust that their advice is as good as others' out there on the forums. Therefore why not look at the search result that HMW did offer, try it, and then report back if it worked for you, or if you need additional assistance, and provide extra details as to where you got stuck?

My final followup here unfortunately also is to reference the following FAQ link, Welcome to LQ.

Please review.
