Could all u peeps out there go so far as to fill in the location and maybe more relevant....distro in your profile ( left hand side of your screen) cos sometimes it would make replying to probs a lot easier......plus it`s nice to know where in the world someone else is :-) cheers mermxx :-)

A couple of threads I have read lately have been about `what is a good isp` and also connecting via adsl......isp`s are usually related to the country that u r in unless of course u r going with the `big ones` and also adsl connection can relate to pppOe or pppOa again relating to where in the world u r. Also if someone is asking about hardware costs then u can recommend places to go....but also it`s nice to know where in the world somewhere is :-)

In the world? In the WORLD? What makes you think we all live on Earth? I, for one welcome our demonic overlords from Hell.

To get back on topic, personally I think it's totally cool to know that the person I'm corresponding with is in a totally different part of the globe. Specifying your location is something I think everyone ought to do. Just my 2 cents -- J.W.

Not specifying your distro is one of my personal pet-peeves. It is almost to the point where I will not help someone who neglects to include this vital information. Every distro is different, and they all have different ways of doing a certain task. Just go to your User CP, put it in the distro field, and everyone is happy.

What's so hard about that?

I am really put off by people who post:

"World" or
"Globe" or
"Where you are not"

or some such silly thing. I don't mind if people wouldn't put their location instead of putting such unhelpful information.

And yes, J.W. You're right. It's nice to know that we're all helping one another even though separated by thousands of kilometres.
