Hi people! Iím new to the forum and I just wanted to let you know that I thought that this is really great info! I can guess that many people donít know how to ask questions, and that this can certainly help them. If I have a question in the future then Iíll know how to post it And it seems that some people canít just ask questions they canít read answers or posts either Ö
Thanks for the great replies guys. Especially you fightgao, signing up just to say that. I don't know what you expect to get out of this thread, but here's a link i grabbed from Onebucks signature regarding this. http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
Sofar this place is been very nice and breezy to use, and all i could think of to say is somuch thanks to this community and its partners, this site has been committed to helping linux for along time, and the spirit of linux and freebsd lives on good here.
i appreciate the smarter-than-me people,i thank you for your time, and i hope i can offer some good stuff cheers.
It's a good idea, but..... When you go to create a thread, there is a link to "Has this been asked before?". The idea is that you can see if the answer is already out there. How many click it? How many read the Rules before clicking "I agree"?
Basically, we can put all the info in front of people and they will still ignore it.
But thanks for the review
You hit the nail perfectly square on the head . It,s a pity we can,t do the same thing to these Drones that think they are well informed people yet can,t see what,s past the TV screen to witness what,s going on in plain view right in front of their eyes. I am new to Linux but i have been hopeless with Computers from way back i was trying to introduce myself in the intro forum when i saw your comment and i just had to thank you for the smile you made from my grimacing frown. Your info in front of people who ignore it anyway covers so much of the Gen Pop,s problem so simply maybe some of them will be able to understand it if they see it it the right place,s enough time,s. Me wearing it around on a shirt wont be the best image for the slogan but im getting one made up in the morning with a heap of the sad truth,s and painful fact,s all over it with the slogan in a bold, blazing and in your face style that will be hard to miss. Im going to need to watch some Richard Stallman interviews to brush up on some facts and misinformation the zombie,s call life. Travel Safe Xavier
It may be that after 10 posts, you still haven't found an answer. Instead of posting this, it would be a good idea to read back over the posts and see if you can work out why it is that no one can answer you. ...
I found it repeatedly frustrating, that perfectly sound advice (not mine ) wasn't acted upon (or the results / failures not reported back). That is particularly annoying if the earlier suggestions are steps in a whole procedure to be tried out for finding a solution and only 15 posts later the original poster grudgingly deigns to test a suggestion already three days old and a lot of effort of other people wasted.
So in my opinion it can't be stressed enough that all suggestions for a remedy deserve a prompt reaction by the owner of the thread, like "I tested xyz and now the error is..." or "It worked okay, thanks".
Simply want to agree with this post, both for the practice/ learn-how and for it's sentiment. It's much like when folks these days end phone calls without saying bye or some other such feedback that they are signing off. Aggrivating, and a bit disconcerting.
