PostPosted: Sun 03 Jul 2005, 00:04    Post subject:  I give up  

I'm sick of rehashing old info thats's available if peolpe bother to search.

I'm sick of people not following instructions to the letter and then saying "It dont work" and spending many posts trying to help then nutting out that they haven't followed instructions carefully.

Of people demanding this and that and with no thanks.

I'm worn out and wish everyone the best with all their endeavours.

Twisted Evil

I have a wonderful Tantric Meditation to help you out at such a moment.

"You are the Puppy.
The Puppy is frisky.
The Puppy leaps.
His teeth latch onto the ungrateful nuts"

Go Puppy Go - they can not shake that Puppy off, no matter how they scream . . .

To everyone supporting Puppy and helping people, I say "Thank You."
I know people can sometimes be demanding and a real problem.
I do have a suggestion.
You guys who have a lot of knowledge about Linux and Puppy, only answer the questions that you know haven't been discussed before. On the others just say "search the forum, the info you want is there!"
I have found that I learn more when I dig it out myself, but there are moments a little nudge can really help. So If we ask things that are answered on the forum in the past, just answer -- search, the answer is there.
Again, Thank you. Puppy is worth the effort.

m m m . . .

you could be right - perhaps my 'involuntary castration' visualisation was a rather extreme response but I can assure you no Puppys were harmed during its production . . .

Cool

I did notice that you were 'waving the white flag' at a couple of posts lately, Bladehunter - and I can't blame you for that.
I'd have done it a lot sooner than you did !

As the Wiki and forum grows then this sort of thing should become a thing of the past, - - BUT ONLY IF PEOPLE LOOK IN THE WIKI OR SEARCH THE FORUM.

A lot of the stuff you do is way beyond my understanding but all us regulars appreciate the contribution you make here.

I'm currently working on the 'bangs head against wall' icon , just for you matey . Cool

bladehunter, stick in there! I share your frustration. having been an admin on a former bios site, i can't tell you how many times someone wrote in to say;

"I flashed my bios and now the system won't boot."

"Well no, I didn't read ALL the directions."

"I thought that I could use any bios flash file from the manufacturer..they are all made by the same company!"

Sometimes we just need a rest, refocus and come back later to forge ahead.

Often folks get angry, just because they don't know who to vent their anger on.

Please don't give up on your development endevors!

Yeah bladehunter, don't give up yet, we need you.

Have a look at what rarsa has in the Suggestions section under, " Knowledge base organization" and see what you think.

Sometimes I get really annoyed when questions are asked that showed the person didn't even do any basic research, like they ask if a certain program is available when it is right there on the menu... grumble, mutter.

Bladehunter, no problem if you want to take a step back. Get back to why you are playing with Puppy in the first place -- because it's fun! ...a great hobby, something to tinker with.
When you start to feel pressured, then it's going wrong.

Wireless is coming together -- you are working on it, I am planning to work on it, danleff and others are inputting ...let it all happen when it happens.
...anyone complains too much, tell them to go and use Ubuntu.

Come on Bladehunter hang in there knowledge is a precious thing and you have the knowledge everybody knows that Puppys yap all day long being a catlover myself I suggest that a new section be opened in the Forum called 'The Dog Pound' and any Puppys who post questions without first doing some research should be despatced there
By the way I cant get my Netgear 54Mps Wireless PCI Adaptor WG311 to work .......oops sorry about that! Despatch me to The Dog Pound forthwith
Hang in there for all Puppys (and Kittens)

Bladehunter and all other Champion Pups,

Cheers,

If you have a large page like Barry's blog news page, I have used the "Find in this page" feature of Firefox in the Edit heading. Any of the other help pages can be searched the same way. It does a very good job. The Forum can be searched this way, it makes it easier to help yourself. So we need to develop our search skills and instead of helping someone with easy problems, just tell them what to search for, thereby developing their search skills also.

I just tried to search for the word "Puppy" using the search feature and it found nothing. I have found it works sometimes and sometimes not...maybe this is a reason for so many simple questions!
Anyone know why this is happening?
