Some time ago I posted a note asking if anyone out there was listening. Now
that I am bit more educated, I feel the need to explain the note and tell
you why I felt the need to say what I said.
At the time I was not getting any responses to my note or so I thought.
With the help of my oldest son, I discovered that my Internet news options
were set up to show me all messages in the newsgroup (limited to 300). I
kept looking for new responses, only to find a few and none of them
applicable to my questions. There was not enough room in my setup to let in
all of the responses out there. I finally figured out that I should set up
to read only new messages. Boy was I surprised at how much talking was
going on and yes people were listening and yes there were responses to my
Many people gave really good input. Thank you.... It was most helpful...
Some people asked "what is the question?" Perhaps their computer was set up
wrong also. They said they had not seen the question, yet is was there. I
saw it two weeks later myself. I will post it again soon.
Some people suggested I quit whining. I really didn't think I was. I was
just frustrated that I wasn't getting any help and that I had to read
through note after note about what this person said about that person. I
thought this newsgroup was about rocket stuff, not soapboxes. I will now
get down off of mine!
Thanks again for your patience and your constructive comments. Any future
notes from me will be limited our hobby. I apologize for any inconvenience.
