    Yes, you are very polite, and it's a pleasure to help people like you.

    The thing is, though, you didn't refuse to believe me when I told you. I gather, from reading previous messages in this thread, that others have been called liars (or something similar).
    Please, people, remember to BACKUP before you install that new system. Same if you're upgrading.

    thanks!

    ahh, well, knowing how many (apologies in advance) 'retards' there are on the internet, lol
    that really would not surprise me.

    They are all "pros" in whatever field they choose to gab about on the interwebs.
    And they 'know all'...
    So I really can see people doing that...

    "Irihapeti~ "Just so you know, I am a Woman"
    "Interweb geniuses" " Sorry, but no you are not. I can tell a woman when I speak to one, and you are NOT a Woman, stop lying, you arent fooling anyone!"

    That's not "dyslexia". I'd hate to see you do a Rorschach ink blot test.

    Now then, each of these slides needs a reply from one of the people in the picture. You'll tell me what you think the person would say. Alright?

    ALEX
    Righty, right.

    The doctor reads aloud the dialogue printed in the cartoon balloon ó a peacock.

    DR. TAYLOR
    Isn't the plumage beautiful?

    ALEX
    I just say what the other person would say?

    DR. TAYLOR
    Yes. Yes, well don't think about it too long, just say the first thing that pops into your mind.

    ALEX
    Right... Knickers... Cabbages... It doesn't have a beak.

    Alex laughs. Slide of woman speaking to boy.

    DR. TAYLOR
    Good. The boy you always quarrelled with is seriously ill.

    ALEX
    That's right and I'll smash your face for you, yarblockos.

    Slide of watch shop.

    DR. TAYLOR
    Good. It wa your fault... you sold me a crummy watch. I want my money back.

    ALEX
    Bollocks. You know what you can do with that watch? You can stick it up your ****.

    Slide of nude woman in bed, a man at the window.

    DR. TAYLOR
    Good. What do you want?

    ALEX
    Excuse me, missus. No time for the old in-out, I've just come to read the meter.

    Slide of bird's nest with eggs.

    DR. TAYLOR
    Good. You can do whatever you like with these.

    ALEX
    Eggiwegs. I would like to smash 'em. Pick up th elot and f... owww...

    He slams his hand down and cries out with pain.

    ALEX
    ****ing hell...

    DR. TAYLOR
    Fine. Well, that's all there is to it. Are you alright?

    ALEX
    I hope so. Is that the end then?

    DR. TAYLOR
    Yes.

    ALEX
    I was quite enjoying that.

    DR. TAYLOR
    Good. I'm glad

    ALEX
    How many did I get right?

    Favorite man page quote: "The backreference \n, where n is a single digit, matches the substring previously matched by the nth parenthesized subexpression of the regular expression." [excerpt from grep(1)]

    Ah yes, the solution to people being jerks is not to fix the jerks...it's to fix their targets.

    Likewise, bullies should not be punished by the teacher for being bullies, but rather nerds should be punished for being nerdy enough to attract the bully's attention.

    A bit melodramatic, no?

    She would have been fine trying to fix the jerks as well -- but that would take some time and effort on her part, which she obviously was not ready to put in. Mind you, sometimes the amount of time and effort required simply is not worth it on a personal level, so I'm not saying she did the wrong thing by walking away.
