Those are my worthless cents as well I suppose
Please understand that what you are talking about is not research, but an
accumulation of information==noise from dumb bloggers.
What they teach in medschool is to use your brain, not the collective
knowledge. If you are so confident in your self-diagnosis, just talk to
doctor and let him challenge your reasoning -- you'll see that even if
conclusion was correct, this was a shear luck.
Wikipedia may be good for trivial things (diagnosing a running nose in
terms) or reading about the comparison between email clients, but is
completely misleading in more sophisiticated problems. This is because
who could actually improve it are way to busy / don't care to do so.
Any chance we can all drop this stuff now and maybe share some advice/help
on the OP question or other ones on the list currently, I know I would
happily take even some flaming now on my battery question :P
Lol at your House comment.
It's ok, I perfectly understand that a person can get confused when
similar names come up.
It probably has happened to all of us at least once
I also agree that the Linux community repeats the same info over and
over again, and that it gets
annoying. That's one of the reasons I was attracted to Arch. Because
instead of a person having to repeat
themselves, they could easily just write a well written documentation,
and send people to read them. While
at the other end, the asking user could finally find a well written
document, that would actually be able to help
them, because it was well written in the first place. It benefits both
parties. I also do not like to repeat myself,
and strive to write good documentation once, so that people will
understand it better. That's one of the reasons why
I make Youtube videos. Visual learning is a great way to teach
someone. Especially the people that are too comfortable to read,
which they will have to get over it.
I don't believe I am more valuable, or more important than anyone
else. I signed up to these mailing lists about a week ago,
there is no where to signing up to the Arch mailing list where it says
"You must bottom post". Some communities top post by default,
some do inline posting, and some do bottom posting. It's something
that a person has to learn and adapt to while they are in the
If you look at all my posts in the last 3-4+ days, they are all now
written in bottom-post format. There may be 1 or 2 that slipt since
I switch between my phone and computer, and I have to disable top
quotes, etc. Also I didn't pull the "oh look I have more contributions
you card". If you look at my post, I said that my comments are
valuable and are not noob-irrelevant-spam-troll like comments because
actual Arch linux user. Not just some random person. I showed some of
my contributions so that you can understand that I am an Archer, I am
a contributing user, and I legitimiately card about the future of Arch
Linux, therefore my constructive criticism to not just OS design, but
to Etiquette behavior should be heard (Doesn't have to be followed,
but at least listened to). That's how democracy works. By listening to
citizens. Same goes with the AUR, and when people vote for packages
for inclusion into the community repo. So I hope I cleared that I
to compare my contributions to anybody else. I'm sure, proud, and
happy that we have members like Gaetan and you in our community
because I'm sure
that you also help, want to continue helping, and love Arch linux just
as any other Archer.
I don't know how said Arch is the natural replacement for Ubuntu
either. I did say multiple times, in my videos, and in these posts
as long as a person is willing to read documentation, that it doesn't
matter what there starting position is. Doesn't matter if they are a
or a pro user from another Distro or OS. The important thing is that
they are willing to read the documentation in order to further their
So I completely agree with you as well Angel, and it's exactly what
I'm promoting and have been saying.
I'm glad you have helped a lot of people in this community, and I'm
sure you will continue to do so. I'm not happy that you or anyone else
to receive Troll comments. Now I believe that as a person with an
@archlinux domain in your email, you are not just a regular Archer,
of course are an esteemed member in the community. Therefore as a
person with authority, you have to be a roll model for everyone else.
saying you have to take crap from anyone, but I am saying that you
definitely can't be making "troll-like comments". That doesn't look
especially when an outsider comes to look at Arch and sees people with
power trolling on it's users. They will surely leave, no matter how
or pro they are.
You don't have to apologize to me. Drama, and correct etiquette
behavior are two different things.
Thanks, I will continue to learn
Of course, a person definitely has to use his/her brain when reading
anything online. That's why I said we have to be careful with what
we read, and why people need to keep an open mind when they read the
information and go to speak to their doctors about it. There will most
Or ask for advice from an experienced Archer for clarification on whats
been read, or the lack of finding something to read in relation to a
issue, miss configuration due to not grasping something. Or it could
even boil down to weak google-fu skills on part of the new comer.
But if its something clearly discussed in the Wiki or is something thats
been answered in the MB archives, most other boards I belong to just
flat out say nothing. Which with the mind set and wants of other Archers
would be a good thing. Or posting one of those let me google it for you
links. I built a quick little one for another board for a COM unit I use.
Anyways no more noise from me on this topic.
likely be a flaw, and the doctor will need to correct that flaw and
logic. It's also the doctor's responsability at that point to not act
arrogantly and try to make the patient feel stupid for them trying to
self-diagnose themselves. Life's a two way street, and there are
responsabilities at both ends.
Can we tag this [solved]^3 now?
