Re: Anyone else notice...

Did anyone else notice that Loco asks for beer and money up there... but wants it all sent to HIM?!

Sheez... some people    :evil:

Besides, I like dark beers better... 

Lol....

Re: Anyone else notice...

Loco deserves some beer, for all that work in copying over the old FAQ
and reformatting it for the new forum!  The rest of us just spent our time
either arguing pointlessly, or complaining about lack of time, or being
too busy to do anything at all; but, Loco finally actually went and did
it, and got us all moved over here... ;-)

Re: Anyone else notice...

Yes, I didn't even think about it...

In fact, in some post someone offered you (ML) good "karma", and you told him about sending you money instead (LOL)

I can share the money/beers with all of you, and expect you to do something similar  :wink:

Re: Anyone else notice...

Yup, I remember the "good karma" offer a few months ago (sheez, I was just thinking, that was probably about a half a year ago!)...  never got either one though :-(

...and I couldn't move the site... I am not an admin on the board! :-P

Re: Anyone else notice...

Now now now!!!

As for today's suggestion...

I was just thinking... maybe a good way to build the library / info here is to start asking people to submit 'articles' on topics they are experts on... and create a locked forum for posting them?  I'm half tempted to do a couple myself on some oddball (or not so oddball) topics...

Btw, I forgot... where the heck are you (on the planet) now anyway?

Re: Anyone else notice...

You mean me???

I am in Managua, Nicaragua right now.

I am working on a project for a telecommunications company (i think the only one besides Bellsouth)

This is a very different culture (really different from my country's culture even though they are very close), so it has taken some time for me to addapt to it...

I will keep reporting my adventures

Re: Anyone else notice...

Where are you AND WHERE IS MY BEER???

:x

Oh, thats right... you said where you were at... so I guess its just...

WHERE IS MY BEER???

Btw, what do you think of the "article submission" idea?  Gotta get these folks fired up somehow...  I figure the idea of possible fame and fortune... ok... maybe a little "fame" but no fortune... by getting something other than a paragraph or two answer in the forums might inspire some of them?!

Re: Anyone else notice...

It's very difficult to send you beer. Just give me a (physical) mail address and I will try to send a couple of them... ;)
Or maybe I could go up there and invite you to a couple of beers (ok, I know this sounds bad in USA, but in my country it means just talk for a while and drink something, no other meaning!!!)

About the articles, submissions, etc, I guess it is ok. I've not had tim to finish my article about IPC (I was going to write about System V IPC, but you already covered part of the semaphores issue, so :P ), and so many people here can post good articles.

I suggest we create a separate temporary forum, and give access to those who ask for it. Once they have posted here, we check it and move it to the right forum... Although it'd be easier for them to post in the corresponding forum... :)

Re: Anyone else notice...

I only did the semaphore stuff cause a few people had asked questions and I knew you have limited net access where you are currently working...    besides, I didn't give any in depth explanations other than the comments... so take it, clean it up and use it (if you want)...  or not ;-)

Anyway... ok... if you are ever up here or I am down there where you are... you owe me a beer!!!
