mcriderCommented:
NO STINKIN' WIFEY-MONSTERS?? <LOL!> You got one of those??

The PalmPilot knockoff is kinda cool, but it didn't come with any cables to connect it to my PC to sync it. Gotta buy those separately... But it did come with a CD with Sync & other software... Just no way to put it on the little beast.

What floored me was... no cables, but *batteries WERE included* jeez!

By the way how are you writing your AOL MAILER...
0
 
wsh2Author Commented:
Haven't really looked at coding a text editor.. am more concentrated on basic features. The interface is much like Windows Explorer.. Cut Copy Paste View.. with principally (for now) Export capability. Nevertheless.. I am comfortable enough.. with the Filing Cabinet layout to do Importing as well.. <afterall.. to do a copy.. you need to create an entry>.. its just all a matter of time in adding features.. <smile>.

wsh2Author Commented:
Just read your AOL Filing cabinet question.. its late here and have been busy working <hic> here.. <wink>. Will catch up with ya in the morning.. <smile>. Are you still on AOL?.. Or perhaps AIM?.. or even better yet have unlimited cell phone calling and your own satellite station?.. <sigh>.. Oh well.. hopefully we can find a means to real time chat.. <smile>. Until then..

<poof>

mcriderCommented:
Yea, I have an AOL account...  I'm never on it anymore... My satellite station got pounded by a micrometeor shower and burned up in the atmosphere :-(

I need another 175 million to launch another... Can you spare some change?? <G>

wsh2Author Commented:
<yawn.. throb..throb>.. Good morning mcrider.. <groaning from the previous nights activity>.. hmmm.. 175 million, eh?.. you'll just have to wait a couple decades until senior citizen discount day.. <smile>.

Anyhow.. via AOL or AIM.. I am under the suitably named pseudonym of...

WSH2

Naturally, anti-social creature that I am.. I am blocked.. <or is that a psycho-paranormal thing I've had since being a kid?>. Now.. if I knew your screen personna, I will open up my curmudgeon buddy list to you.. <smile>. Short of that.. if you can get to an Instant message portal.. just key in WSH2 and do a send.. I should be at the other end of the can & string, and will give you a peep back.. <smile>.

As to meteorshowers?.. Hmmmm.. I guess its true.. that all good programmers get a piece of NASA every now and then, huh? Lucky YOU... LOL.

Having thought about it a bit.. this IRS tax nonsense has me a little bit miffed. If indeed, awarding real points is an IRS obligation.. then it clearly implies that any answer retrieved/left on EE has value. Establishing this, it then means that with every answer EE saves EE has been enriched. Each increase in inventory value corresponds to an increase in profit, and hence an income tax burden to EE. Yeah, right.. like any of this is being declared.. although maybe it is and they are writing us all off as dependants, huh? LOL.

Oh by the way.. caught up with another Lamer today.. Ollie.. Offers a 100 point question.. (which you participated in).. eats all the responses up.. and then passes one small tidbit question for 20 points to Ark.. who expounds ad nauseum.. and then returns to the original question to greet one and all with a the answer is simple.. I am deleting the question.

Anyhow.. he is back on the board now.. with a 200 point question.. somewhat comaparable in scope to the 100 point one before. Naturally, being the femalelike RAG-head that I am today, I left a nasty note on the question (comboboxes).

Hopefully thingz get better from here.. <smile>.

mcriderCommented:
What question did you leave the "nasty note" on?? <G>

I find it amazing how many *dishonest* people there are on EE... Considering that they don't pay for the information.  All they have to do is open an account and ask a question.

Fortunately, the vast majority of folks using EE do play by the rules.

Hey.. long time no see.. its nice to see that you can fit in a little bit of life between Expert Exchanges.. <lol> and a <smile>.

Presently I am into it pretty heavy with Ian about posting Questioner Historys into threads.. (he says No No.. and I say caveat emptor.. let the Expert beware).. so I don't know how long I will be around.

Just wanted you to know.. it has been a GREAT pleasure treading the boards with you.. and that I hope we can catch up with one another someday.. <smile>.

wsh2Author Commented:
Work.. it totally distorts a mind.. LOL.

Ian and I are doing offline EMail.. and really going at it (who me?.. heheheheheh).. so there isn't a thread here to enjoin. His point is don't upset the Questioners.. my point is.. if they have a history of being a deadbeat (either through abandoning Questions or substandard grading records) then let Experts know it before they p*ss away a lot of time in the Question. Ian says just pass over the question (EE endorsed blacklisting?) and let CS handle it.. my point is that there are 168 hours in a week and only 3 people to cover them.. by the time they get there.. other Experts are already sucked in to "gambling" their time in the Question. Ian says my language is too strong.. my point is.. it has to be, as in most cases CS and Experts have already "politely" commented more than once and so far, in most cases, I have gotten positive results. Let me add.. usually I just post the Question History, highlighting the FACTs and then provide some Community Support written recommendations and that is it. If the Questioner responds negatively.. well.. I take the liberty to comment negatively back.. (ya gotta have some fun, right?.. <lol> and a <wink>). Ian says Forum moderators are coming (more unpaid Expert work, huh?.. LOL).. I respond.. BAD IDEA.. just like the IT Olympics (pitting Expert vs Expert) was.

Anyhow.. so far Ian and I have been are BOTH pretty incalcitrant in our positions. The only difference between us.. is that Ian has the authority to do something about it.. and I don't. Having never dealt with Ian before.. I'm not certain on how much leeway there is here. But as of this writing, as you may well expect, I will most likely push it to the limit.. and as a consequence of that, I figured I would bid my adieus with those that have truly impressed early.. <smile>.

OMG.. just remembered.. In my spare time I am doing AOL Beta testing. Version 6.0 is ok.. nothing spectacular to report. But just the other day they shipped me a Home Networking Beta test. Through one (dialup) connection.. up to all 7 screenname accounts can be connected at once. I haven't installed it yet.. but I have the Beta here in case you are interested.

Well I see absolutely nothing wrong with posting the statistical information about a user... After all, it is *PUBLIC* information provided by EE... If they don't want experts to use the info, then they shouldn't allow us access to it... however, you may want to compromise with Ian and instead of posting the user data, simply say "I *PASS* on this question - SEE User Profile"... or something just as benign.

Rottsa Ruck!
