Check the Archives First .... : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

While it isn't TEOTWAWKI to repeat questions that have already been addressed, some on multiple occasions, check out the archives to the forum before you post a question.

You may find that the subject has already been addressed. Or, if you still don't have the answer you need, post your thread with the new question and give a link to the archived thread.

That way, we make the best use of everyone's time and of the archives as well.

Won't take you more than five minutes, max.

Lets tell them where the archives are. There are people on this forum that still don't know to just scroll to the bottom and you will find the archives. tas

Yes, as others have suggested we need a permanently visible, pre-amble type of page for newbies, that has a lexicon of acronyms, abbreviations, and basic navigating instructions.

One of the things that have bugged me about the PC software industry since I got into it in the mid-'70s is the general disregard by the old pros for the needs of the end-user. We used to call it documentation --- I guess nowadays it's considered 'a profit sinkhole.' We can do better than the commercial software manuals, many of which emulate the Mother Of All Bad Documentation: Microsucks Users' Manuals.

Big Dog,

I've checked in a couple of spots in the archives for the Grandpappy thread about foraging for wild edibles & can't find it. I thought it would be a nice addition to eve's current thread. Any ideas where it might be?
