Very fair point.
I see where you are coming from now.
Correct, you would end up with something just so totally incomprehensible as to become a complete and absolute joke.
Everyone just conducting their very own private like talk.... that was necessary in aceshardware, because I could be troubleshooting some very obscure and tiny minute difficulty related to MS Windows OS or a new Graphics accelerator board or something.... so it would be really specfic and detailed.
I.e. If someone else ran into a similar problem at aceshardware.... they could pass on a possible diagnosis or fix etc.
Whereas the 'restriction' imposed by the sequential posting format does provide that necessary limit I guess to prevent a 'real bird's nest' from happening.
BTW, I am a well known poster over at http://www.aceshardware.com/forum,
though I don't have the time these days to post anymore, and am largely 'out' of the IT end of things.
Back in the late nineties.... my suppliers of computers/components was a guy here in Dublin called 'Gareth'..... when I would buy stuff from gareth I would quickly rush home and run questions by the 'aceshardware' message board... it was very surprising how useful and interesting a way this was to operate.
Hence I just kept 'garethace' hotmail and garethace handle ever since,.... even though I could be posting in completely different message boards.
Where did SW101 come from?
