    I'm there most of the time I'm infront of the computer, and if somebody asks a question I know the answer to I'll respond. Guess that's how most people behave in the channel.

    What with everything else, I simply have no time for IRC. Plus, I neither read nor type fast enough to keep up in an active IRC channel.
    I tried on Genoo IRC and those who were trying to help me got frustrated and abandoned me. Of course. It didn't help matters that I was using irssi during an install and had to switch between vc's 1, 2, 3 and 4 to get the info I needed to give in order to get a reasonable answer.
    One of these days I'm going to give Gentoo another try. But not without a Gentoo Guru sitting in the room with me to shed some light.
    But, I digress. I enjoy offering advice/info and gathering same from others. However, do to the time/skills needed to effectively engage in IRC, I'll have to limit my involvement to the forums.
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?
