I tried but it is too hard to read it after pasting into bb. I think there might be one or two curse words like RTFM, etc which is why it is getting rejected. Take a look at it when you get home.

Plus, his "copying policy" specifically forbids making static copies of the text, either print or online, without his permission.

I'm sure there's a mirror somewhere (mirroring *is* allowed).

brilliant I've learnt lots of new ways to reply to people asking dumb questions from the section at the end of the document

I particularly liked

Quote:

Q:

My {program, configuration, SQL statement} doesn't work

A:

This is not a question, and I'm not interested in playing Twenty Questions to pry your actual question out of you I have better things to do. On seeing something like this, my reaction is normally of one of the following:

* do you have anything else to add to that?
* oh, that's too bad, I hope you get it fixed.
* and this has exactly what to do with me?


edit: just to make it clear, I don't really intend using those answers to people that ask silly questions, but is IS tempting sometimes

Amusing answers to dumb questions is a subject for another thread.

Please feel free to start it
