But u certainly Dont know the word modesty

Modesty had nothing to do with my job. And I'm sure not the only one on this board that actually works with this stuff, as opposed to spending my pimply years "trying" it.

The one thing I despise about the computer industry is all the kids / idiots who think they know better than someone who already works or has been working with computers for years.

What other profession do you get where school kids think they can do your job ?

I understand your point and agree with you. My technician now had the same attitude untill I took a 2 weeks vacation. :) Ever since he has decided he couldn't come close to what I do on a daily basis.

Anyone that thinks that XP is "2000 for newbs" doesn't deserve to call themselves a tech. As for your spelling/grammar, if you're so quick to pick things up with computers then why not take 5 extra minutes a post and turn it into something readable. We fired a tech in our shop for the exact problem you have. How professional is it to had a computer back to a customer with a service order that is insanely mispelled and makes little to no sense?

Edit: damnit Tom you were one of the few around here that made sense... why'd you have to go get banned!! :(

Sure it does:

-Thread title: "Games in 2k3, why not?"

-Thread answer: "Because it's a server, not a workstation, dolt."

Wow..You sound like Steve Balmer.Exactly the same words,like to steal them from his mouth.

Should there be a reason to believe that code that comes from a variety of people around the world would be higher-quality than from people who do it professionally?

Actually those weren't exaclty the same words, and it's about coding not network management.

Well... you can change a little bit the faces and the roles but it looks the same meaning to me.

Ok sorry for the exactly.

But why some people here trying to make the others to feel so unimportant and unrelated when they have a different opinion from theirs.

It looks strange to me people which their knowledge is indisputable, behave like immature kids instead to help the people with a proper way,and specially respect?

Its all about the negativism and rudeness,thats my point at least that i m trying to say and i m sure u understand my friend.

If i say to u that i was playing a better basketball from M. Jordan how would it sounds to your ears.

Arrogant at least.

But what do u know about me and who i m?

So why some people they spell such words.

"We are the experts and the rest of u...etc..etc"

I dont care about the level of their knowledge.The two things i care is morality and the passion for what they are doing and this is enough for me.

" Seize the day,"My friend.

Oh come on now... I actually preferred playing games with Windows 2000 Server...

And what's wrong with 98SE? Besides memory management, it's a very good OS for our old-school games ;)... I have a partition w/ 98SE just for CivI, System Shock, Descent, etc :)

Yeah, except for that whole thing about being an unstable POS.

System resources, ha!

Fatal exception error, ha!

etc.

All the non NT OSs sucked

Unstable? I think I may have crashed 3 times in the 3 years I used 95/98. Although -- before SE, 98 was crap (and before 95C, 95 was crap). 3.1/3.11 need not apply...

I've crashed about 10 times with XP, 0 with 2000 though.

It's not always the OS, sometimes it's the user (or what the user downloads:blush:

There was a 95C? Never knew that. Got out of 95 as soon as I could.
