[TechAssist] Re: CTC-177AA BAD POST ALERT! ALERT! ALERT

Hello Ken, I am familiar with computers, I repair them all the time. My problem 
is with the operating system I am using, M.E. and Explorer 6.0 preview2 doesn't 
allow for my signature on replies, only on original e-mails I write. If someone 
knows how to make it do it on replies too, I am all ears and would appreciate 
the info.

Dear John, Dave, and All,

Sorry if you were offended.  Jeff and Phillip and great guys and pour a
lot of time into helping people.  There have been a number of posts
recently that were less than adequate.  I had a similar reaction to the
post, I must admit.  Almost like the customer who calls you on the phone
and says her TV won't come on and then asks how much it will cost to fix
it.  Not enough information for an answer.

Knowing what to include in a plea for help is not always easy.  Earlier
today, I asked for help on a Sony with regulation problems.  Someone
wrote back and said "Resolder horizontal driver transformer."  I thought
"Anybody would know to do that on a Sony."  But, not so.  It took a while
for me to learn that for myself, and I didn't include that in my post.

Dave, 99.44% of the techs know about the ground plane problems with RCA
and GE, but you didn't say you had done the TGP.  If you had done so, my
first thought would have been a solder splash.  You gave no history,
implying that it came in for just the snow problem.

John, when you take the time to write, what is a few extra keystrokes to
sign it?  I spent months writing out a "sig file" until I realized I
could do it in a click of the mouse.  That is in Juno.  I click "Edit"
and "Insert Signature into Message".  I understand others insert it
automatically when you send.  If you need help, just ask for it.  There
is a great bunch here with knowledge over my head.

All, I hope we all can use this situation to think a little more.  Let's
make it a positive learning experience.

Sincerely,


Ken Smith
