I really think there are a couple of "people" who do nothing more that sit around trying to think of really silly questions to ask, and when that fails tries to reword questions already asked to appear like new questions. Just like their screen names.

and then use caps to draw attention.

and I thought I had nothing else better to do that come here and try to give suggestions....

bt cudnt kwite bring miself too due it.

God that was too damn hard to do!

Your OP was a good one. I have been cruising around out here for about a week and a half now, and beyond the questions for which I have no answer, the rest is garbage. I get PO'd and determine to just stay away for a few days, but I am addicted and once I read a blog/article or 2 I just have to cruise the questions. It might just kill me before my time!

HOW TO ASK QUESTIONS THE SMART WAY
ERIC STEVEN RAYMOND
THYRSUS ENTERPRISES


WE'RE (LARGELY) VOLUNTEERS. WE TAKE TIME OUT OF BUSY LIVES TO ANSWER QUESTIONS, AND AT TIMES WE'RE OVERWHELMED WITH THEM. SO WE FILTER RUTHLESSLY. IN PARTICULAR, WE THROW AWAY QUESTIONS FROM PEOPLE WHO APPEAR TO BE LOSERS IN ORDER TO SPEND OUR QUESTION-ANSWERING TIME MORE EFFICIENTLY, ON WINNERS.
IF YOU FIND THIS ATTITUDE OBNOXIOUS, CONDESCENDING, OR ARROGANT, CHECK YOUR ASSUMPTIONS. WE'RE NOT ASKING YOU TO GENUFLECT TO US ? IN FACT, MOST OF US WOULD LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN TO DEAL WITH YOU AS AN EQUAL AND WELCOME YOU INTO OUR CULTURE, IF YOU PUT IN THE EFFORT REQUIRED TO MAKE THAT POSSIBLE. BUT IT'S SIMPLY NOT EFFICIENT FOR US TO TRY TO HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT WILLING TO HELP THEMSELVES. IT'S OK TO BE IGNORANT; IT'S NOT OK TO PLAY STUPID.
SO, WHILE IT ISN'T NECESSARY TO ALREADY BE TECHNICALLY COMPETENT TO GET ATTENTION FROM US, IT IS NECESSARY TO DEMONSTRATE THE KIND OF ATTITUDE THAT LEADS TO COMPETENCE ? ALERT, THOUGHTFUL, OBSERVANT, WILLING TO BE AN ACTIVE PARTNER IN DEVELOPING A SOLUTION. IF YOU CAN'T LIVE WITH THIS SORT OF DISCRIMINATION, WE SUGGEST YOU PAY SOMEBODY FOR A COMMERCIAL SUPPORT CONTRACT INSTEAD OF ASKING HACKERS TO PERSONALLY DONATE HELP TO YOU.
IF YOU DECIDE TO COME TO US FOR HELP, YOU DON'T WANT TO BE ONE OF THE LOSERS. YOU DON'T WANT TO SEEM LIKE ONE, EITHER. THE BEST WAY TO GET A RAPID AND RESPONSIVE ANSWER IS TO ASK IT LIKE A PERSON WITH SMARTS, CONFIDENCE, AND CLUES WHO JUST HAPPENS TO NEED HELP ON ONE PARTICULAR PROBLEM.
Edit:

Thought I had better shorten it a little. Just to save a bit of space on the server.

I don't much like Office 07. Intuitive is one of those 'relative' things. 07 is a nightmare in my book, though many would argue that.

Goofya** Publisher 07 has forgotten how to update a calendar... Makes those nifty highly customizable calendars that were once easily reused now useful only 1 semester. Have to go in and rebuild them every 3 months. Wonder if MS knows yet...
I'm not telling. It's past time they got their head handed to them while stuck up their behind on a silver platter.

time user of M$ products I have came to the conclusion that they have succumbed to the throw away society mentality. There are still problems with every Office Product that they have put out. Mind you they have gotten close a few times. It was also the longest install I have ever seen for Office.

Anyway I will have a play with it and see how it goes, but I don't think that I would rush out and buy it. Just yet, a couple of patches later maybe.
