Try doing a little bit of research, maybe google, and when you're *really* stuck on your homework people will be a little more forthcoming with help.

You have, of course, looked at Microsoft's web site before going to the trouble to create an account here.

Do you know why?

It's because students in IT colleges in India get a welcome pack of the things they need to know the most. I was lucky enough to get a copy of it from a colleague. I was shocked by the content.

Page 1. How to turn on your machine
Page 2. How to log in
Page 3. How to open internet explorer
Page 4. How to create an account on TR
Page 5. How to use google
etc ...

They never get past page 4.

It is difficult sometimes

by jdclyde In reply to Do you know why?

to not judge the poster based upon their location, because there are so few valid members coming out of India these daze.

This one was no exception, and clearly not "valid".

It also gets to the point, with all the worlds IT jobs getting dumped into India to be handled by under qualified individuals, that I find myself not caring to assist them in anyway, shape, or form. Why would someone help someone else take your job? I can't think of a single reason.

I know what you mean

by Bizzo In reply to It is difficult sometimes

I try not to let the location sway my response, and most of the time I try to give a reasonable answer. But some of the questions asked are clearly taken from some coursework questions and absolutely no attempt has been made to answer it themselves.

One that came up earlier this week, a programming one I think, there was hints on how to answer it in the question. Obviously the poster didn't even bother to read the question, just posted it here.

Not many of these new college kids seem to want to earn their qualification, and that's what annoys me. I see your point, why should we put the effort in to help, if they're not going to put the effort in themselves.

Edit: And don't even get me started on training offshore people to take over my job, I've already had to do it.
