Forgive me if any of this sounds rude, not my intent

1. We are volunteers here, there is no required time limit to respond to a post

2. It's frowned upon to create a brand new post to ask why a response hasn't been received in another post, if you must ask, do it in the original post.

3. I come in here when I have free time to kill to lend a hand (as I suspect most do), I in no way feel any obligation to run back in here as soon as I get home from work to post replies.

4. It's not all unusual to wait 2, 3 or maybe even 4 or 5 days for a response. If you need more urgent attention I would suggest a qualified local repair shop.

Dave,

CD won't let me rep you, but I will after I spread some around.

I think posters get pretty uptight about this stuff and forget.

NHDave: My apologies, if I have upseted you, it was not my intention. I was under the impression that some of the people who answer these posts work for C/D or Microsoft.

If I knew you were a volunteer, like I know now, I would have controlled myself, more. You sent me a download, I posted the information you requested, and I waited, and when I did not hear from you, I was afraid to use the computer, because in my mind, I thought it would explode. So, I went to the local library to use theirs. This is my first computer, and I guess it has become my baby.

Again, I apologize for my actions. Have a good day, and thank you.

Miranda, you're not always going to receive responses in a New York minute here.

You can always google around for a computer forum(s) URL as well as one would think they would have more poster volume just for that, but even still it could be a response waiting period there too.

This computer section is a mere tiny compliment compared to the rest of CD.
