    I'm impressed though - you go to the GD first as opposed to the specific programming one. Also, things are not always what they appear to be.

    Two things - be coherent, enjoy, and use code tags.

    Not that much faster, Joe, but at least we were of the same mind!

    Well, I belong to several other forums (Mainly ones that focus on building computers) so I know where the places to post are. But something bugged me while I was reading the guidelines:

    If you are depressed or suicidal, I strongly urge you to seek professional help or the counseling of an adult in your community. The message boards can be an unfriendly place, and though some will be sympathetic, others will not be, and you are unlikely to receive the support you deserve. All too often, these threads result in flames and hurt feelings and nobody feels better.
    Is this how it is here?

    And a plus, those were pretty fast replies. I'm impressed now

    Not really. It's generally friendly if you're friendly to it. Don't show fear whatever you do we can sense it. It's rather sarcastic ... even if you can't see it

    Some of the regulars can seem a bit rude when it comes to random people posting personal problems--or, more often, poorly thought out programming questions. We have very little tolerance of obliquity and lassitude.

    Plz link to a dictionary when using big words like obliquity and lassitude. kthxbye.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    That reminds me of a guy that came into my store. He was talking all about his courses in forensic toxicology ("Only four more courses to go until I'm certified!") when he said:

    There is a difference between tedious and difficult.

    To be fair to us, however, for the most part we are understanding if a general attempt has been made at the problem. But coming in and doing a one shot post about how to do this or that with no code shown is not a good way to make friends.

    The bottom line is: if you don't know how to do A or B, google it, try, and then come here and ask about a specific problem you are having which will then spark up a conversation and environment in which you can learn more about your problem and perhaps others relating to it.

    And if you don't know or are over your head then say so. We all have been over our head on a project so we know how you feel. If you act like you are immune to that or know it all, then we wonder why you are even asking a question.

    The general approach I use here is that my problem however important to me is not all that important to everyone else. So I have to 'sell' the problem to others to get them interested in it. That normally gets the post going and/or stops people who know nothing about the topic from posting. Sometimes your problem seems like the most important thing in the world, but remember to everyone else it's just another programming problem.

    Welcome to the boards and happy coding.
