@Iain
I think you will find they are still somewhere on the face of the Earth just not posting in the forum. :D

Apart from the exageration I would agree this is annoying.

Pi Hut: you suck.

When I order a 2.8" TFT kit I expect to get a kit, not an amateurishly soldered pre-assembled screen with a broken lead on the touchscreen connection.
When I try to contact you to enquire about the issue I expect a response, not to be ignored. If you are going to have a telephone line then you should answer it when people ring you during the day, in the middle of the week.
When I e-mail you I'd like to receive a reply within a reasonable timespan, even if it's just an acknowledgement of my complaint.

Pi hut: you suck.
I'm taking my business elsewhere.

Finally finding a thread that addresses a problem you're having only for it to end with the original poster saying "Never mind, I figured it out" without providing any details.

I sort of laughed and cried at the same time (slight exaggeration).

Really, it's nice when someone comes back and says what they did (or if they did something else instead). But perhaps if there were no other replies, the poster just assumed the answer was obvious and only they hadn't known it...

Extensions are 100% irrelevant. We're not running Windows with its broken file associations crud. Unix determines the contents of a file with the magic bytes in the header. The file command reveals what linux thinks the contents of a file mean. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_numb ... ramming%29

If you have a shell script named /usr/local/bin/foo and another named /usr/local/bin/foo.sh it doesn't make a blind bit of difference. You can have an executable called /usr/local/bin/bar or /usr/local/bin/bar.sh and again it's just an executable file.
I know. Its just annoying when you are using Xcode to create an application (.sh files) and some of the files in that application are from a Ubuntu booting computer(Unix Executable).

Perhaps it is ( ubuntu specific versions/forks/alterative) binary programs called from shell script on osx? aka shell script dependency hell :idea:

What is so hard about posting a link to http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt ... 28&t=58151 rather than telling the new user who is probably a new user of PHPBB3 forums to "Go and read the sticky thread".

STOP DOING IT PEOPLE. BE NICE!
Give the new user a break by feeding them the link they need. It's not hard.

What is so hard about seeing "NO VIDEO - NOT BOOTING?! Read this, the boot problem sticky!" at the top of the Troubleshooting page the new user is posting in? :)

Because, it's clearly invisible (or doesn't trigger a synapse) when they post a new thread.

Smart phones..

So, some-kind-of-phone running some-kind-of-os. Internet explorer works fine, facebook app says no network.
Solution: set date and time correctly.

The next time some one says "Google it" I will scream. Took about 6 search strings and about 6 or 7 pages from each search to find the solution.

So you expect the solution to be the first page of the first link on the first page of links that google provides ? :roll:

I sort of expect that the poster has Googled before they tell someone else to, and it's always nice to suggest a search string; not everyone has a black belt in Google Fu.

Well that's down to your search terms (getting them right is an art in itself)

I find I have to put lots of things in quotes or adding a + to a word as nowadays google is "helpfully" ignoring some of your search words.

ObRant: why is it so easy to type crontab -r instead of crontab -e :evil:

I sometimes wonder if the English language would benefit from a few thousand more words being invented, to get rid of the most common double meanings and improve searches.

There was me, writing a document in LaTeX -- a very good text processing application. However it is not the most modern of apps and needs fonts that have been prepared for it. I had a font I wanted to use, a fun one where each character is formed from figures like something out of Venician canival or dark fairy tales. It is called Bizzaro. So I wanted to know if anyone had already prepared this font to work with this text processing app...

And I Googled "bizzaro latex".

The defense rests.

How could anyone think that "tap to click" is a good idea for a touchpad driver? Synaptics are f******* insane, "tap to click" is f****** insane. Also when I switch "tap to click" off, can it bloody stay off permanently and not magically re-engage?
