Posible newsfeed changes at Orcon

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Collector»NZ, Nov 2, 2004.

  1. I noticed Craig testing in NZ.Test and now see that we are getting suck
    feed from DNEWS again and a lot of groups in the list are not available
    now so perhaps some changes are taking place to improve the Orcon News Feed

    because it is handy to have it subscribed from time to time, and also
    because you get to see who thinks they are having trouble, or testing
    stuff. :)

    My second reason, pity the Hmmm man is so pathetic that he cannot see
    that when there are heaps of message with the subject line test you need
    to check a few to ascertain which one is the one you want.
    Mind you thought process is not currently his strong point

    I don't usually get involved with these silly little arguemnts, but this
    was just too good to be true. You mock someone of their thought process
    when they ask a perfectly ok question and yet you are saying you can't
    even tell what messages you post unless you read each one in the test forum?

    As hmm? pointed out, you should check the from header not that you were
    probably testing at this point anyway, but nice cover story :).

    What is that old saying... oh yes...

    People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones..

    If you are going to question someones thought process at least make sure
    you don't make yourself look like a fool in the process.

    Actually if the poster had been a little less sarcastic in his comments
    he might get a better reply.
    Note that the poster is one of the more time wasting posters in here and
    NZ.GENERAL.

    The fact I choose to browse with minimum headers is my choice not his, I
    find it convient since I get a larger area to view the message which
    after all is usually what I am interested in.

    As to the value of his comment nothing more than troll level and poorly
    at that, about his normal level and it seems yours as well.

    The important part of the message for those with a genuine interest was
    that a sys admin from Orcon was testing news feeds in nz.test possibly
    indicating changes where afoot.

    There are none so blind as those who will not see.

    reminds me of a scene from the simpsons...

    Grandma Simpson & Lisa are singing "How many roads must a man walk
    down?" together.
    Homer overhears and says, "Eight!".
    Lisa: "That was a rhetorical question!"
    Homer: "Oh. Then, Seven!"
    Lisa: "Do you even know what 'rhetorical' means?"
    Homer: "Do *I* know what 'rhetorical' means?"
    and another...


    Lisa-"It is better to remain silent and be thought the fool, then to
    open your mouth and remove all doubt."
    Homer's Brain-"Uh-oh what did that mean. Better say something or they'll
    think you're stupid."
    Homer-"Takes one to know one!"

    Oh I am sorry, maybe you didn't read my original posting?
    Lets review it.
    "maybe a silly question, but why does some read nz.test? "

    seems ok to me?
    Now lets check your helpful reply.
    "Because he was using it for a test Doh "

    and you are saying i am sarcastic?..


    > Note that the poster is one of the more time wasting posters in here and
    > NZ.GENERAL.


    I have never posted in nz.general, please show us where these posts are?
    Or is this your "thought process" in action again?

    It wasn't actually, I was actually wondering why people were subscribed
    to the test forum, dave gave a decent answer, I am not sure why you had
    to resort to being less than helpful. If you thought I was trolling
    then fine, you didn't have to answer, but to answer the way you did of
    course you are going to invite a thread of arguing.
    One just has to look through this nz.comp and in so many threads we can
    see you arguing, arguing is fine, its a form of debate, but you seem to
    take it a step further with persoanl insults at anyone you disagree
    with. maybe you should chill a bit you might live longer. I don't see
    why you feel the need to drop everything into a personal slanging match
    all the time and you wonder why you have problems with people immitating
    you etc, perhaps its because you invite it on yourself?

    Yes, thanks for that information, it will be great if orcon get things
    going better.

    yep, open your eyes and find me those messages i supposedly posted on
    nz.general, but don't worry, everyonw knows people make up stuff now and
    then to try and win an argument, so i wont hold you to finding them :)
