Just so you don't misunderstand my zany emails, not a day goes by that I don't feel like Forest Gump when I sit down to my computer. Technology is moving too quickly or I just wanna know everything about everything, I don't know which.
Thought you might want to know I just sent this PM to that youngster kbrady1979.
I just wanted to let you know that your most recent post was both unnecessary and unproductive. I was trying to close the door on an issue and you re-opened it. I can only assume that it was an attempt to draw attention to yourself.
Well, you did just that.
This is being blown out of proportion now.........nobody is asking for a hanging on the courthouse lawn. We all said he was right, and it was a difference of opinions. Simple as that.
I just closed the door again. Please do not reopen it.
I laid awake most of last night knowing that I did the right thing in defending TwoCables but frustrated that I could not explain why I had to. I won't betray Tim's confidence, so I have resigned myself to being misunderstood by group members accordingly.
One thing I can assure you is that Tim is never motivated by ego or a need to be right. What may have come as an annoyance to so many was just the only way he knows to help.
Perhaps this PM from TwoCables is thanks enough:
Wow. Thank you, Dennis. Thank you very much. I'm very blessed to have you as a friend!
Rest assured that I would defend you as well, if it ever came to that. You have been good to me and I value your friendship.
My apologies for being so cryptic, but it's really the only way.
Two Cables you just have a way with words, don't you? Apparently you do know more than everyone else since you have disagreed with almost any statements made here. I hope th OP realizes the good recommendations here and see through the smoke and mirrors.
I just read most of the posts on this particular thread. Though I hope not to make any enemies, I must say that the above response sounds like it's rooted in jealousy.
TC does know what he is talking about. He has an extremely detail-oriented mind.
(Don't ask me the reason for this. Let's just say that it's both a blessing and a curse. When Tim gets to know you better, he might share it with you.)
In the meantime, you can always take his advice and observations to the bank.
Give me the specifics as to your hardware and I'll give it my best shot. I might be a total idiot when it comes to Win7 but I've been fixing hardware problems for many a year.
Footnote: If you're using Gigabyte boards, I emphatically refuse to help you. Would suggest however that you extract your 1 oz. of Cu cause that's about all those boards are worth. Forget about RMA with GB boards. They will send the same board back to you and say that you burned it out with static; they will actually destroy the board themselves to prove a point. I have the evidence and so do lots of folks on OCN.
(damn, I'm so cool, don't ya think? It's all part of my psychiatrist's attempt to make me feel younger and more confident. )
Just a quick note to let you know that I haven't forgotten about you. Now in the process of setting up 3 computers, one Win 7 6-core for Work, one of the same for AV sound system, and one Linux 4-core. The Linux box is just to make sure that I constantly feel intimidated and don't get too cocky about how much I know. As I may have mentioned, when I go out of the house, I feel like Einstein's offspring; when I sit in front of my computer or talk to you folks, I feel like the village idiot.
I would like to do the same in this computer where we have been discussing the BIOS problems. That one has a 120 GB SSD, and I have an extra 80 GB X25-M just that I would like to install some less important programs on to take the load off the 120 GB SSD with the OS and critical programs.
Question: Should I connect that secondary SSD after I have installed the OS on the primary SSD or connect both before I install Win 7 (both SSD's and the optical drives or main SSD and the opticals)?
If I become a PITA for you, just let me know. I handle rejection quite well actually.
