9 I can't agree more - in many cases (both here and on IRC) when I ask a
10 question, its because I REALLY DON'T have a clue what may be wrong, or
11 even (in some cases) how to Google for an answer, or what information is
12 relevant / necessary to post. I do not mind at all if rather than
13 providing a lenghty / detailed explaination, someone points me at a FAQ
14 / HOWTO / Wiki article. (unless im in the middle of a crisis outage) I
15 prefer to learn, so I can do it myself the next time, and possibly help
16 those who might have the problem at a later time. In general, this list
17 has been VERY VERY helpful to me and I am quite thankful for it.
18 (unlike the list where I had a user reply to a question that I should
19 follow this procedure:
21 cd /
22 rm -rf *
24 )
26 Thankfully I caught that one before I actually executed it.
28 Hopefully -- eventually -- I'll have enough knowledge to be able to give
29 back to the community.
