    This is getting way off topic, but quite simply put, if another member makes a suggestion in a post, there is no need to answer your own version all the time. Some of the posts, while simply confirming someone is either right or there is a better way is fine.

    I suggested a couple of places to get the connectors in this post and right away they got shot down by saying you have already looked for 30 minutes. Doing a google search brings up several places in NZ that may have them in seconds.
    There have been times other members (myself included) have worked on problems for several days with not much more than a simple thanks.

    Where you wrote:
    I happen to be rather intelligent and have several years of deep experience in computer and other tech related stuff
    Many people here work in the IT business, and have done for many years, some like myself also run their own business.

    Some of the members here will have forgotten more than others learn.


    Back on topic: tweak'e You could try DSE, I know the Lowert Hutt store had them, you can also buy a complete lead, I was looking for one for a customer only on Monday - about $10.00 for one Mtr I had laying about.

    Also try Ascent - they may have full cables, cut the cable out and bingo - you have the connections.

    And the quality of my replies would be what ? and that I have made many replies is yet again equaled by you as : "trying to talk every ones suggestions down" ???

    All I can understand from that is that you are unsatisfied that I spend too much time , by your judgement , trying to help people , or giving them my advice or opinions on things that they have asked for opinions on.....
    it seems as though your'e trying to be all high and mighty with your replies as being the absoulute only answer.



    and obviously you didnt look hard enough for cablesdirect, then claim you didnt discount looking in nz


    anyway, WT's suggestion's were on the right trail.

    lets leaver it at that.

    .
    I used Scroogle search and did faithfully my best to go through the N.Z. sites to se if they had listed what the person wanted.
    And that I reported having already on-line checked the site you suggested is construed as "shooting you down" rather than giving information - strange how different people can comprehend things - but if you see things that way you may have some chip on your shoulder.
    And I did remark that the person might find the stuff locally.

    So I'm not qualified because I do not own my own business or I have less rights to utter my opinions ????

    How about everyone take a deep breath and let it out slowly. There, that is much better.

    Behave people and remember you can just walk away rather than post it.
