Been there... Done that...

I was reading Pete Finnigans blog this morning and ran across "a rant".

A rant I very much can relate to.

One that I myself experience from time to time.

Read this - and especially the last paragraph.

Note to Pete - if this is the first time someone has every written to you in this fashion - you are very lucky :)  I love it when they use sarcasm in "thanking you" as this individual did.

I'm suprised you guys show as much restraint as you do when responding to certain people.

I love re-reading some of your Mikhito (sic) posts on asktom, he would try the patience of a saint!

There seems to be something wrong with that blog. No content shown whatsoever!

Hi Tom,

It is the first complaint i have had about a free script; not the first complaint though.

I laughed just now at the guy who said i had spelled intreface (oops did i do it again) incorrectly as someone has pulled him up on his grammar. It's actually a correct spelling of "interface" as it's the Yorkshire spelling which is inteface, we have our own dialect here..:-) - i guess its like using "ya" for whatever that means (you have?)

Mike: the page draws, its sometimes slowed because of the links to digg and reddit, it will display if you wait.

cheers

Pete

And the point it made.....reading the manual would be great, I am sure Tom has plenty of his own work to do without making sure you are able to keep yours....

If you can't server answers on silver platter what good is it? /sarcasm

I'm very happy with contributions made by others to find about anything on internet.

Ignore the whiners.
