<Rant mode on>
Yep I'm afraid I'll have to agree with the masses.
I submitted a question regarding window managers and how to configure gnome,
(linux related???? I thought so.)
no body else thought so. Not a single reply, mind you there were dozens
about a SCSI adapter/converter, either everyone who thinks they know
everyone on the list are a bunch of dopey bastar&s or you think that because
anyone outside the regular circle of postings doesent warrent a reply. I
think that although I was initally impressed with the list, the fact that
only certain people were replying to certain questions, giving the
impression that only certain people care about their own needs or that
ultimatly they know nothing about things in general and that they only need
spout about stuff they know or need answers for.
Its great that someone can post a message saying that enlightenment is the
greatest Windowmanager, and there are dozens of replies agreeing!! yet no
one can reply to a simple post about how one could set about coniguring the
window manager in question,

I would like to thank Colm Buckley for his efforts with the entire ILUG
operation, you have done a fantastic job and although I did post a reply
with a binary file attached to my mail I wish to apologise for my naievity.
Everyone else on the ILUG team for their efforts and very informative
articles on the web site. I think that any one on the list should get sense
and troll through the archives and search for something releventm rather
than suffer the endless barrage of useless information.
I will continue, to subscribe although I feel that I cannot take the list
seriously any more.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank John Rohan for the
lightning quick delivery of SuSE 6.0, I'm well impressed with it so far.
On a final note ( and i feel sorry for you if you lasted with my mail so
far) I would like to thank everyone who replied to the questions that I
posted. After all Im still a newbie.
As for the rest of you if you want to show off you programming prowess or
imagined linux prowess, share it with someone who really cares if they have
the highest disk benchmark in Linux.
My mailaddress is sweetr at linux.ie, feel free to flame me if you have any
problem with any of my comments above. Hell it will be better than recieving
