Anyway, I think we're done here. I see that you've moved on to a couple
of more interesting topics.
Hi Char Jackson,
I solve *every* technical problem (if there is a solution out there) I run
into, where I ask myself perhaps a thousand technical questions every year
(I'm not going to count the amount so that's just a ballpark figure).
How do I solve those problems?
I'd wager something like a third to a half are already solved where those
solutions are easily found, while a third to a half aren't solved or the
solution isn't obvious since the problem sets can be askew.
For an example of an askew problem set, look at the post yesterday, where
the goal is a free second phone line. If you google, you find lots of
solutions for "second phone lines" but free makes it harder always,
partially because a lot of the so-called reviews are simply shills, as
you're well aware I'm sure.
Also, I find the *best* free tools for the job, where, again, you're well
aware, you can google for the ten best of whatever, and out of a hundred
hits, very few will have the same top tools - where in those cases, it
helps to ask the newsgroup to clarify.
Likewise, as you've seen with my thread on the google archiving of email or
my thread on the wuaueng.dll or my thread on the creation of truly
hierarchal Windows start menus, there are often nuances where no amount of
searching will reveal the answer to.
The problem we have here isn't me or you; it's that trolls like Wolf and
Frank Slootweg have no technical value whatsoever to add (which they prove
in every post).
Worse, these trolls such as Frank Slootweg and Wolf have zero intention to
ever be helpful. None. Zip. Nada. Remember that, Char Jackson ... when you
see how little effort I provide in responding to them - where it's just to
swat away the annoying brainless gnat.
If you, Char Jackson, or Paul, or other intentionally helpful people post,
you'll note that I put much more effort into the post than I do for those
annoying gnats Frank Slootweg (whom I know for years has never once added
any on-topic technical value to *any* thread) and this Wolf troll.
You prove that you're intentionally helpful; I prove that I'm intentionally
helpful (by my very summarizes, for example), and yet, the trolls such as
Frank Slootweg and Wolf prove in every post that they have zero intention
to ever be helpful.
Just watch and let them prove my words.
