Am I the only one annoyed by the monthly PJ soap-operas. It seems that we get a ridiculous installment from this guy who bites off more than he can chew and then complains that it's too big every full (or is it fool) moon (28 day cycle . . . sorry obvious,stupid joke). The patience he gets from folks on this list should be commended, but questioned. In what sense is the community benefited from the dramatic "life-story" of an ungrateful novice? This guy puts forth his problem(s) only to update the list at every small/backward step and then ultimately offer something offensive such that the devs can't speak English. He needs to work things out before blogging on freebsd-questi...@.
