Don't agree. "TakeTheActive's " posts  and help suggestions have been accurate and on target....
True. A bit colorful text perhaps but who am I to comment on that with Murphy moving across the botton of my messages. :)

...I think the annoying posters are the ones whose queries clearly indicate they have not bothered to read word one of the instructions...
I'll even grant a newbie a bit of grace on that one also.

I completely agree with Dave W on this one. Although sometimes bluntly to the point TakeTheActives advice is well worth considering he obviously has the experience to back it up and aside from that TakeTheActive is the only one who understood my scroll.   :D :D

Steven r,
Regarding posting a photo. It seems to refer back to where ever the actual photo is.
I started to post a photo a while back from my desktop, but when it appeared that it would refer back to my desktop, I didn't post it.

My experience also. My guess is you would have to have web space somewhere to link to it. I was hoping to hear from someone that has done it.

Our wives are undobtedly related...mine uses the same phrase constantly.

PS to the above sensless, arrogant, self serving, egotistical post.

ME???  :o

You ARE being funny, right?  I was refering to my own post directly above. [/size]

Hey! I saw the words "sensless, arrogant, self serving, egotistical" in the same post with TakeTheActive!?!  :o

I think TakeTheActive might have just gotten a bit gun shy with all the love he's getting from the other posters.  ;)

I personally don't like them and only vote helpful If it helps me with a problem I'm having! the + rating is somewhat helpful for newbies as they can see How helpful someone was in the past. I get many PMs asking for additional help but can only guess that the rating is the reason! ??? ::) ;) the - rating is useless as many have stated!

TakeTheActive: keep up the colorful posts! I've missed them! ;) :D ;D

Hey Old Buddy! I was worried about you!!

I saw your name in the STATISTICS as a MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR, but didn't see any recent posts - I would imagine that your cabin is complete by now, eh?

P.S. To those of you that ABSOLUTELY HATE my post formatting, *I* was the one who taught Tuicemen over at AccessX10 a couple of years ago...  :o 
Now that he's back 'online' and appears to have the formatting down pat, I can start ragging him about his SPELLING again!  :D  ;D

Doesn't that UNBALANCE things, if some folks ONLY vote + (the thankful ones), some folks only vote - (the ANGRY ones), and some folks vote BOTH (IMO, the fairest) ways?!?

I've got another idea on this subject that I might post later on, if I have enough energy left...  ::)

Nice to see that you have all kissed and made up.

Just wanted to let all know that if you haven't been to your local Radio Shack store recently you might want to check out what they have left in X10 products. I got two prong outlet modules for under $4 and a desk top controller for $3. I shopped at a couple of different stores and although the prices were lower than normal at all of them they were not the same at all.

Just thought you would like to know. ::) ::) ;D ;D

It's not done yet! one of those work inprogresses that never finish ;) :D ;D

At least there is a spell check here when it works! Oh, and if I take the time to do it! ::) ;) :D
