  1. Thanks for the heads up ratchet. I learned the consequences of trying out beta appz the "hard way" after installing the IE7 Beta 2 on my machine; had issues uninstalling it and when it was currently on my system some programs started acting kind of funky. I guess the lesson to be learned is that as long as one realizes he/she is trying out beta software then he/she should expect to see some issues. Beta software should never ever be considered stable.
  2. I'm actually not surprised to hear about this. I knew that Firefox was "too good to be true" and in reality just about any software will always have its issues. I do use Firefox from time to time, sometimes I switch to Opera, and depending on the site I might end up using IE. I look forward to the future versions of the aforementioned browsers though; it shouldn't be too long till we see something like Firefox 2.0 or Opera 9 or IE 7.
  3. Ohhh, I just wished they released a stable version of 9 already, lol! I've been waiting for it for quite some time now. A couple of things I hope for are a fully-functional BT support (but the option to disable it also if anyone wishes to use his/her own client) and a better support for rich-text editing mode for services such as Gmail and Hotmail. I could go test out 9 beta 2 preview but I'm not really into the whole beta-testing thing unless it's an online game, lol.
  4. Hey massey, Good topic. The computer is actually a complicated piece of equipment, technically-speaking. This said, I think it's good practice to NOT assume that people asking for help have clues about how certain things works. It's better to walkthrough them as if they are just getting on the computer for the first time. Obviously, condescending tones and implications should be avoided as you don't want to offend the person asking for help, or worse, create a flame-war. On the same token, you don't really want to be too complicated as to lose the person. But it's better to just answer what the person asks for and (if possible) provide some sort of simple explanation/description on terms that you think the person might not know. Helping others is a good thing and you build healthy relationships with others that way. Something I find disappointing is when a person responds to a question by saying, "Google it" or "Use the search button". Why take the time to type that that useless crap when you can be more helpful and just give what the person needs?
