In all this discussion about assistance I have a suggestion.
The biggest problem with giving tech assistance on the internet
is that it's really a very primative form of communication. In fact,
it's a throwback to the Victorian era when everyone sent letters back
and forth. The only 2 differences is that now we type (which is a slight
time/effort improvement over hand writing) and the delivery time is
instantaneous instead of however long the mail would take. Of course the
mail time was never any effort expended on our parts - only the actual
composition of the letter.
If someone out there has a specific technical question where
"private replies are requested" why not give your phone number?
Alexander Graham Bell invented a wonderful machine. It involves no
typing or writing and the response time is instantaneous. Not only that
but your questions can be immediatly replied to. What can take literally
an hours worth of time in typing and composition can be done over Mr.
Bells invention is about 5 minutes. It's truly an amazing form of
This is why, when I'm e mailed with a technical question(s)
that will involve more than a one-time single paragraph respectfully
answer I insist that they call me. And yes, a certain number of those
folks ask me "You mean I have to call you on my dime to get your free
technical assistance?" I respectfully answer - "Yes". I know that's
cruel and unfair, but, well " it's an unfair world where truth and
justice triumph only in theatrical performances". Lon
