    Don't know how I missed this thread :oops:, Anyway Jooske you deserve all the praise you get :)

    In the early days you helped me tremendously with DCS products, you've guided me as a junior Mod and working with you is a great pleasure.

    What more can I say except keep up the good work!

    Thanks again for the kind words. We're such a team if you haven't noticed on the forum here and at DCS :)

    Coming-out

    Hey - I'm only human.

    I keep trying (more or less successfully) to come to terms with "real life" and to restrict the time I spend in these discussion forums. So I have been absent and have not noticed this thread, which I should have.
    Also I try to save time by not always responding to every thread that I could say something useful on, thinking that someone else will be ready to say it.
    And, yes, I admit it: sometimes I do feel a certain question is a dumb question. Then i will simply not respond to it. (But - in case you're worrying - I never remember who was the one who posted it, so I think (hope) that I'm not adressing any one with bad prejudices...) If I have a good day, and feel relaxed, sometimes I may even ignore that feeling and try to answer the seemingly dumb question seriously and as helpful as I can.


    Well, with all that said, it makes me wonder if Jooske is human, too.
    She is not helpful alone, she seems to be always present, always ready to share her knowledge about an issue, even ready to spend some more time researching issues mentioned (just so she can help in the discussion), and all that always open-hearted, nice and friendly, answering even the most, say, basic questions. And her contributions to "atmosphere-only" threads like TenForward or the "lighter note" threads over at DCS make for a good deal of the warm and friendly atmosphere I appreciate so much at wilders and dcs. To me this is a miracle. I do mean it.

    In (philosophical) ethics "superergoratory" is an action or a behaviour that is of the morally highest value, but cannot be demanded because doing so would be to ask too much of a human being.

    So actually I am wondering if I may say:
    Keep it up, Jooske!

    What I may say anyway: I'm admiring it and want to thank you for it.

    Hugs,
    Andreas

    Ahh! You're one of the great teachers on the forums with more then advanced knowledge of so many subjects, always helpful and most worth mentioning opening the SS3 scripting world for us and adding the wonderful Screx script for enhanced security and more options for TDS users!

    I think i emailed lots of what i thought dumb questions to DCS support in the past, but the reactions were always respectful and showing me the lose or dumb remarks were not stupid at all but had a certain content and to check or change things on my system or to explain backgrounds about those.

    Did not create a forum visiting msagent/robot script yet, voice commanded and writing around, so it must have been myself writing.

    Wayne said they don't get too many support emails from me anymore at DCS, and i don't take that as a complaint, but part as a little compliment and as a proof of the good funtionality of the forums where we all can contribute!
    But to make sure email is still ok i'll write some little notes at times :D

    I do like to point you all to a very nice site about computer security brought to the people in a very nice way by an experienced computer security specialist who just wants to do good for and with the people:
    www.baddteddy.com Subscribe on his newsletter and see what i mean. I'm happy such places do excist.
    Allow me this snip of his newsletter to give an impression, if you guys promis to read all the reast on his sites:

    YOUR COMPUTER IS A CASTLE

    If I wrote a technically accurate tutorial with each and every detail of the techno mumble jumble thrown in (plus a few thousand pages of computer schematics) it probably would not be of much help to most people. You would probably be just as confused as the day you opened the box (the one your computer came in) and wondered, "How do I put this darn thing together?". So instead, I am going to present the ideas within this tutorial by disguising them as something else, something far simpler, something that even an adult (lol) can understand. I am going to present them to you as a "castle". Your castle. And I am then going to present the problems that most of you will encounter on the Internet as problems you would also encounter with owning your old castle. Maybe it sounds dumb, but if you read the following information - an hour from now you are going to feel like a genius. You will be able to describe all kinds of cool things to your friends, and while not being a computer geek, you will be able to sound like one.

    YOUR CASTLE HAS ARRIVED

    Boom! Something just happened - you're not sure what - but somehow you have been magically transported back in time. You just left the age of computers and entered the land of brave knights, fearsome dragons, and of course castles. But hey! You don't have a castle. So after some haggling at Castles-In-A-Box with a salesman named Sam, who offers you a world of complicated gadgets and calls it the simplest thing on earth, you finally order yourself up a new castle.

    A few months later your castle arrives. It's in pieces. There are stacks and stacks of bricks, boards, lumber, doors, windows (portals) and spires each with a series of numbers and letters inscribed upon it. Of course you are not one for following directions; you throw caution to the wind and begin stacking bricks. Six months later you have a large stack of bricks and nothing that even vaguely resembles a castle. Finally you give in and hire the ten year old kid from next door (smug little ....... ) and a week later your castle is complete.

    You have achieved your life's greatest dream. You are now officially the king (or queen) of your own castle.""

    <now read on on the link above!>
    Ahh how most of us enjoy Startrecks and Lord of the Rings...............

    hmm. maybe so, but then I'm at most a teacher with limited patience, energy and benevolence, virtues which i seem infinite in your case.

    Well, I think it's sometimes hard to see that certain content. But I fully agree that it is practically always there. So, to see it and to respectfully and enlighteningly (is that a word?) respond to it is sometimes a hard thing to do - still you never fail to do so, tho. That's what I meant with me sometimes not reacting on questions that i feel to be dumb - i lack the energy to look for the not-at-all-dumb point in it.
    Then again, you have your crystal ball to help you ;)

    Well, i wasn't actually thinking of scripts. More along the lines of an angel or so. ;)

    Have a nice sunday,
    Andreas


    PS. I hope i'm not sounding too pathetic.

    Patience (with dumb questions) is the most divine of all virtues.

    That's one of the things I like about Wilders: MOST of you are angels because of your patience with dumb questions. ;)

    Hi Acadia,

    Thanks for the compliment. The main reason for that is that we firmly believe, that the only dumb questions are the ones that are not asked.

    However obvious the answer to a question might be, it doesn't matter how you find it, and Wilders is as good a place as any.

    And Jooske certainly is one helper that goes to any lengths in providing the answers.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Thanks again guys!
    We have not only patience with dumb questions, as we just decided those are not considered to excist at all.
    This leaves the --probably dumb-- question if this meana patience doesn't excist either or is it that we put all our patience and time in all the rest?
    Let's say the latter :)
    Guess people who have so much patience themselves are the first to recognize it in others, is that true?
    Think Pieter's postings counter is growing with amazing speed, even the stars changed color in the meantime, and nobody dares to use his/her computer anymore without a hijackthis log being scanned through and getting Pieter approval.
    It's all part of the Wilders experience (exitement?)

    And we love DCS and their tools, yes yes yes!

    Thanks Pazuzu!
    We don't make any difference between licensed TDS (and other DCS programs) users and those who don't know those programs yet if it comes to helping people in the forums, although in case of problems it's easier to refer to those tools we know so well ourselves.
    It's a mission of keeping computers clean from intrusions, infections, destruction and making that a happy experience where possible. The eternal battle between light and dark.
    It's the mission of DiamondCS, and from the whole forum. You'll notice many people jump one and back between both forums, so you'll see us there in the DCS forum and as licensed TDS operator in the Private TDS forum too.
    Close to 4900 postings here, close to 4000 there, a few thousands of support emails, IMs, learning from reading other postings... Good the forum is kept serious and educative where possible so we're not wasting energies here!
    Always nice when users are helped with their systems!

    >"My post just got killed"
    What happened?
    If you lost your posting for some reason (can happen to all of us) it might be advisable in future to copy your text from or to notepad (or at least to the clipboard) and keep that up after pressing the send button till you see your posting succeeded, especially when it's a longer text. (For people who don't know this: contr+A to select all text, contr+C to copy text to clipboard, contr+V to paste it in a new posting or notepad, wherever you want)

    Detox, as far as i read through the forums here, it's a very user friendly habit to help people out as a team where we can :) As it's nice to help people and see them happy posting, all enjoying and learning, also the more recreative threads.
    So let's try to keep frustrations of missing postings and login problems to a minimum for those who have problems at times.

    Hi again Jooske

    I , like a lot of people , lurked around this forum for a while before registering , and I know reading some of your posts helping others was one of the biggest influences on my decision to join in.
    I had no experiance with computers at all until about a year or so ago and was afraid any quastions I had would make me look like a complete fool .
    The fact that I was a fool for thinking that way didn't clue in for a while but your posts had just enough of that warm and fuzzy feeling about them to make me and probably many others take the plunge , and here I am .
    Thanks Jooske for all your hard work

    Kindest Regards
    Frank

  17. Hi Jooske!!

    Just had to take at look at this thread as you've been keen to help me with my problem and incidentally very first forum posting. It is this kind of assistance that has convinced me to become a fully paid-up user of TDS!! I would push hard for some commission if I were you!

    Seriously, thanks :D

    Thanks for the kind words. You know, we all work as a team, the mods, admins, all other visitors, as we see so many others working their hearts out to help others.
    Thats the joy and spirit of being here.
    I'll add this thread to my CV, that will do for the moment i guess.

    Thank you for your kind words Little Eagle! I love eagles, we don't have them overhere like the big ones over in the Americas, although in other parts of Europe there seem to be a few again. In one of those famous pow-wow dancers groups performing overhere was one person named Little Eagle so your name immediately attracts attention of course.
    Anyway, because of how DCS is i love DCS, and i think DCS-addiction is a very healthy and secure addiction anyway. They are one of the main reasons beside the software itself of course why people love their products so much! Support is a very important part of that!
    We all learn over the years to use the software on our own systems in our own ways -- some just as a set and forget and others as central on our system about ruling our whole household with it!
    So once you have your TDS all up and running make sure to include the speech and scripts parts to enhance the TDS experience even more!

    Thanks again for the kind words and joining the DCS family! Have a nice karma cookie for that! yummieeeeee!
