    Well, see, I have a government job now so I don't have to work, or learn. I will also accept a demotion, no problem. I noticed a bug in user profiles that shows Dec 31, 1969 as the oldest date displayed to others for a users bday. I was born in 1956.

    LOL @ all of you, watching you all is like watching a bunch of my immature little friends bicker ;) . I think that you should all kiss and make up, not to take sides, but Phant wasn't in the wrong here, the rest can be left to your imagination.

    When I finally become a Colonel, not like I am in a rush, I will not be cleaning any floors, I am so special, I didn't even have to push the penny across the floor when I first came here :D .

    they maybe should add a [sarcasm] and [humor] tag in VB 3.0, what do you think guys :D

    and maybe a [nobrain] one for some :rolleyes:

    like <noscript> which is obsolete now :dead:

    hehehe :evil:

    Acidosmosis: In case you didn't notice, there is a LOL in my post, if you consider laughing as an act of seriousness, you are the one who should "hush ya mouth" ;) . You may also notice a " ;) " in my post, perhaps that is also an act of seriousness, hmm, maybe I have a crush on someone here, isn't that what winking usually suggests?

    i'm not a colonel on the boards yet !

    but it's not a problem to clean the floor of my beloved place if I need to, just to keep it tidy as we all like it to be :D

    But you will eventually clean the channel's floor FOREVER :evil: :D

    :cool:

    I only know of old Commodore machines and x86 platform with some of its operating systems. So that would rank me as a beginner, but I don't need to ask for help often.

    Ok, I guess the poll was about x86-compatible PCs only but a computer can be a lot more ;)

    To call yourself a guru implies there is nothing left for you to learn, since the technology changes at such a fast rate, I don't think ANYONE caqn claim that title. I chose expert, although in some areas I have much expertise, and in others I am nearing the ******* category. To rate yourself as any of those in "computers" is very broad, while some of us may be able to do just about anything with DOS and Windows, we may not be able to do much of anything in Linux. Others of us may be able to cover all those and many other PC platforms, but may know squat about Mac. Others still may have lots of experience in hardware but may have troubles when dealing with software issues. reminds me of the old joke, "only thing more dangerous than a PC technician with a software patch, is a programmer with a soldering iron"
    Anyway, thats my half a** explaination of my level of computer knowledge.

    JSR... but that's only if you can do it with the laying on of hands! hehe.

    Well, I've been severely humbled by installing Redhat 9. Everything I need to install, installs differently from the last packages I've installed. Each time, I have to Google and learn to get it done. The hardest so far is the Nvidia Video drivers that have stumped me for two days.

    I guess I'm now an *****. Can I change my vote?
