No other jobs, we just sit here helping folks, poor as church mice, freezing cold. You could make a donation.

No more help then...:-)

and thanks for the apology, which is accepted.

Some of us (like me) earn our living from computing, and from advising other people, but we're in a minority here. All of our forum helpers provide advice and assistance for nothing; they give freely of their time, which is partly why I believe they are entitled to a degree of courtesy. Anyone can offer help, and I'm sure that if you stay with us you, too will soon be helping others. I can remember a time when some of our current regular helpers were not quite so experienced, and they needed help themselves. That's how it works - we all pass on the knowledge we gained partly from others and partly from our own experience.

I hope you enjoy your time with us, and thanks once more for the apology - not everyone responds to one of my emails so publicly, or with such maturity.

Its was a hobby.

I think it has turned into an obsession!

Have to have my daily fix on the helproom forum.

Working away for a few days I'll be going cold turkey till Friday.

We do it for Free,



In our spare time,

freequently unthanked,

often insulted,

for no other reason than there are poeple out there with a question to which we might just perhaps have the answer.

Hi, well done mate - this is exactly why we do it. I hope others follow your example.

Retired and quite oldish :-))
