OK the access one was OTT, I see that now, I think there were some crossed
wires somewhere. Its just that ILUG is one of the BEST resources I have seen
for all sorts of help and I'm in a lot of newsgroups both internal and
external, but ILUG is my personal favorite, as its very helpfull, nobody
flames - that much - and its IRISH. I have been tempted to post non-linux
related stuff before, but I usually found what I was looking for with a wee
And totally OTT but last night I dreamt that I worked for google with BillG
and Linus - I woke up all confused - wierd or what.
Anyway no worries, were all friends.

Yes, I wasn't referring to that post, which I agree was Linux-related
(albeit slightly). I was referring to the post
(http://www.linux.ie/pipermail/ilug/2001-July/034255.html) which was a
"how to use Microsoft Access" question, nothing whatsoever, even
tangentially, to do with Linux.
As I said in my previous message, it's not a "snob" issue, or a pro-
versus anti-Microsoft thing, it's a question of a message being
appropriate for the list it's posted to. The technobabble list might
be more suitable than the ILUG list, but I still think that a bit of
googling would be more productive overall.
