TR "peers" that use the

By Jaqui ·
top 100 list as a contact list to ask questions, without even bothering to learn anything about the person they are sending the question to are becoming a real pain in the SPAM list.

I've started getting peer messages from members who I have never seen post anywhere on here, asking me how to do stuff with Flash, Java and Javascript.

what a joke huh? anyone who reads my posts knows I do not use, or support the use of, all three of those. Why would I help someone to implement them?

As far as I'm concerned, mining the top 100 for contacts to ask questions is spamming the peers asked, unless it is on a subject that the person being sent the question does post answers / comments in favor of.

Now come on W2K

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to As far as I can remember

Gathering Thumbs isn't something that happens with the Kiddies who ask those silly questions they never rate them so what are you missing out on?

But since you asked so nicely I'll give you a few thumbs.

Now how many more do you want?

It appears that handing out Thumbs is no longer tolerated.

So W2K is just going to have to Suffer and go without.

To **** in a handbasket

Q&A has gone to crap, I don't even bother browsing it anymore. A never ending list of people asking test questions, doing homework and looking for ways to crack stolen boxes.

What a waste, it was WAAAAY better before, when we had tech points and you NEEDED points to post a question.

The avatars have been 'off' for a few days...

by boxfiddler Moderator In reply to OK who broke TR this time ...

sometimes all I see is a name, sometimes nothing. Then I open a thread and the avatar is there... very weird.

Tonight the usual advertiser .coms have been freezing up making for very slow page loads, though oddly I could click links and go to another page.

Very weird. A ghost perhaps.
Or maybe that durn broken HAL9000 remotely fiddling with things.

I have been getting no problems with page loads, avatars or any such nonsense.

must be a windows bug.

my linux boxes are immune to them.

you need to get a real distro, DIY Linux. ]:)

none of this easy 20 minute install, full gui garbage.
use one you have to build from source code.

oh come on now

by The Scummy One In reply to ha

I am not that smart -- without the mouse, how can anything be done??? :^0

Ok, personally, I have limited Linux knowledge, and am just a sad and lowly user. Not even a power user
I even prefer KDE over Gnome :0

While I can get around a bit with the command prompt, to me the full interface is much better for a desktop OS.
However, its a tossup for PC BSD or PCLOS, and for bloatware linux, SUSE works fine for me as well.

Not here Boxxy one.

Everything was working perfectly when I last looked but earlier today the Site wasn't showing any Avatars.

Perhaps you need to find a Windows Teacher who can Edumicate you on how to use Windows. I know that it is a Cheap, Second Rate, Faulty OS but even it sort of works almost right some of the time.

On this Debian Box things where displaying perfectly till today and now that the Site has been fixed everything is working Perfectly again. :0

Edited to Add So does this mean that I'm to be punished again and forced to use Windows till I'm good again? :^0
