jsut wanted to say that instead of getting all het up thinking I was blindly lashing out at hackers that you read ALL my posts. I explained that it was my spybot programme which informed me of hacker activity.

for those of you who were helpful and POLITE, thanks a lot.

Why can't we be friends (4x)

I seen ya, I seen ya, I seen ya 'round for a long long time
I really, I really, I really remember when you drank my wine

Why can't we be friends (4x)

I seen ya, I seen ya, I seen ya walkin' down in Chinatown
I called ya, I called ya, I called but you did not look around
I pay my, I pay my, I pay my money to the welfare line
I seen ya, I seen ya, I seen ya standing in it everytime

Why can't we be friends (4x)

The color, the color, the color of your skin don't matter to me
As long as, as long as, long as we can live in harmony
I kinda, I kinda, I kinda, like to be the president
And I could, and I could, and I could show you how your money's spent

Why can't we be friends (4x)

Sometimes I don't speak right
But did I know what I was talking about
I know you're working for the CIA
They wouldn't have you in the mafia

Why can't we be friends (4x)
(Repeat to fade)

All I Really Want To Do

Bob Dylan

I ain't lookin' to compete with you,
Beat or cheat or mistreat you,
Simplify you, classify you,
Deny, defy or crucify you.
All I really want to do
Is, baby, be friends with you.

No, and I ain't lookin' to fight with you,
Frighten you or uptighten you,
Drag you down or drain you down,
Chain you down or bring you down.
All I really want to do
Is, baby, be friends with you.

I ain't lookin' to block you up
Shock or knock or lock you up,
Analyze you, categorize you,
Finalize you or advertise you.
All I really want to do
Is, baby, be friends with you.

I don't want to straight-face you,
Race or chase you, track or trace you,
Or disgrace you or displace you,
Or define you or confine you.
All I really want to do
Is, baby, be friends with you.

I don't want to meet your kin,
Make you spin or do you in,
Or select you or dissect you,
Or inspect you or reject you.
All I really want to do
Is, baby, be friends with you.

I don't want to fake you out,
Take or shake or forsake you out,
I ain't lookin' for you to feel like me,
See like me or be like me.
All I really want to do
Is, baby, be friends with you.

and now to bring some balance after all this fluffy hippy music....

See me ride out of the sunset
On your color TV screen
Out for all that I can get
If you know what I mean
Women to the left of me
And women to the right
Ain't got no gun
Ain't got no knife
don't you start no fight

'Cause I'm T.N.T. I'm dynamite
T.N.T. and I'll win the fight
T.N.T. I'm a power load
T.N.T. watch me explode!!!!!

I'm dirty, mean and mighty unclean
I'm a wanted man
Public enemy number one
So lock up your daughter
Lock up your wife
Lock up your back door
And run for your life
The man is back in town
So Don't you mess him around

Do not believe Metla's post. We called in to his shop today & as beetle says, "he is just a big softie", also there is no truth that he wears fluffy slippers to work, ( I looked). He is very helpful & informative. PJ
PS He has NOT paid me to sat this !!!!! PJ

Do you remember your early days on PF1 when you were struggling to understand what was happening with your computer? You needed help and you found it here. Cast your mind back to that time, then imagine how unwelcome you would have felt if your post was responded to with belittling rudeness, even if it was associated with some helpful advice. We might never have seen you again and PF1 would have been all the poorer for your absence.

That is the problem with abrupt, rude, or sarcastic posts, especially those that ridicule a newbie's question or refuse to help because the question doesn't meet some arbitrary standard of computer or english literacy. Intentional or not, they put down and humiliate people who simply came here looking for help.

It is no excuse to say it's a rough world so get used to it, or that's the way I am so get over it. Every person who comes here asking for assistance is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect, and to have their problems addressed at a level suitable to their skill level. Their choice of computer should not be put down either, be it an old P75 dunga, a home built special, Dell, PC Company, HP or any other branded product.

Everybody has to start somewhere with computing, and most of us are not so old or so stupid that we can't remember what it is like to hit the wall on what often turns out to be a very common and easily resolved problem. The thing about elementary mistakes is that's exactly what they are, elemental, so they will continue to crop up, over and over again as new users find PF1, or meet the problem for the first time.

Life is full of new experiences, but with a little help from our friends most of them can be reasonably pleasant.

Help should come from the Heart, not the Liver.

and sorry for highjacking the thread.

heres my first thread/post, The subject i tackle was the only reason i signed up, don't think i visited or posted for a good six months afterwards.

As can be seen i point the finger at the site accusing them of promoting spyware,I also question if some people are on drugs,...then i call others arrogant....and THEN i get all huffy.

Plus of course we have the first instance of someone spelling my name wrong...

The Legend arrives in style.... (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=31352&message=131413&q=gator#131413)
