Let me apologize for any misunderstanding concerning this site. I honestly did think it was a question answer type site and my intention was not to get everyone riled up. I dont think I was being aggressive as someone mentioned, maybe a bit sarcastic, but not aggressive.I wasn't the one who dropped the "F" bomb.
Anyway, I apologize to SKY for my response and to anyone else I may have offended.
I truly hope you all have a wonderfull holiday season, and thanks for the advice on where I should begin my searches for simple questions.
I hope no hard feelings.

I'll agree with MoMan here. Thank you for the tune change.

You may wish to prowl around about.com . They really are not an in-depth site, but may be able to give you some working knowledge on some of your questions. I also would advise you to spend some time working with some people that do this stuff for a living that you are friends with. Sometimes you learn a lot from the true back and forth from a good conversation.

That said, if you run into something that searching google, yahoo or even about.com doesn't help you with, please come on over and ask in an open and clear fashion what you need.

Plus, while you may not be looking for a best bud, pen pal, you can be cordial and perhaps join in on a conversation or two. This gives us at least the sense that you may wish to be a member and not just a taker.

I think it is safe to assume you are not a tech expert, but maybe you have some life knowledge that can be useful in another area.

I too have mellowed over the years, or this Irish hothead would have spent hours replying to replys, and just making matters worse. With age comes wisdom, I guess. Thanks for the tip on the address in my profile, didnt even know it was there.(newbie)
Ok, a bit about me, I am a merchant seaman, have been for 35 years, married with 3 beautiful daughters. I know how to start a computer but that is about it, but I will check out other options before asking any stupid questions, I promise.
Thanks for the reply, hopefully we'll talk again

Funnily enough, I read your apology before I was aware of the cause of it!

I meant what I said - it really would be great if you decided you wanted to stick around and get to know people here. By making a friendly suggestion, I was hoping to facilitate this process for you, so that you wouldn't incur the wrath of other members. I also wanted to set you in the right direction for dealing with other computer problems which will come up in the future.

I hope you can now see that I had good intentions, which didn't warrant a rude response.

So, that being said, apology accepted. Let's leave it at that, and I hope you have fun around the boards.

Dude, I've been here longer than you have and I've never seen you blow your stack at anyone who didn't deserve it at least twice over.

______________ Xanthine __ I had some Apprentices that would beg to differ with you. However I only jumped down someones throat if they endangered themselves or others. On one occasion I Da#$ ripped of the head of a fellow Die Maker, he did an insanely dangerous thing at a drill press that ended up throwing a huge die ring through the Tool Room, I and two others narrowly escaped by jumping because the man looking that way started to jump. We were looking the other way and jumped because Brian did. That must have been war reflexes.
