Re: VB Videos Programming Help

        Hi.
well said.
i do not attack other members on public mailling lists.
so Rick should not do the same or any other member.
maybe you should take it up with the moderators, and maybe a file list rules 
or etticate message, reminding members of this.
okay, so maybe i am struggling, and maybe i do not understand, but trying, 
some examples, are straight forward, but others, having problems trying to 
understand, and trying to learn.
people, do not understand, i am on my own, doing this externally, as my 
nearest campus is over 1000 kph, away, in adelaide, australia and moved to 
Tasmania with my parents.
so, you can see, do not really have the support.
did e-mail my lecturer, and he really cannot help, as he is teaching 
multiple students, multiple subjects like vb, c#, c++, java, multimedia and 
flash and asp.
and at multiple campuses in Adelaide, australia.
so, sorry about this, if do not seem to understand.
cheers Marvin.

Good morning,

Having tutored students in client-server programming with Java, I can
understand how it can sometimes become frustrating.  However, I do not
believe that a public mailing list is the place to make statements like the
ones below.

I believe that individuals who are making an attempt to learn should be
applauded, even more so the greater their struggle.  I have a friend who
tried 5 times to get his bus drivers lisence before he was finally
successful.  I thought it was silly at the time, but now he drives all over
Canada and the US and enjoys what he is doing a great deal.

HTH,
Everett
