That seems to be a pretty good book.

Especially this part "also included a step by step guide how to avoid  being flamed"

Finns are really cool, like that Linus guy, he is also cool.!

Sweet picture smile

I think forums should make the Search link stand out more.  Maybe more people would notice and use it.  And to be fair, sometimes finding what you want in a search on a forum can be a black art.

In my opinion, one can't ask too many questions. big_smile

And yes, it's very much fun to learn new stuff.  tongue

Ïf the same question has been asked over and over again, then it might be better to read the old answers before asking.

How ever, questions that haven't been answered are totally different thing.

PS. I don't think the book is real, it should be though! big_smile

Yes, I agree, they should use the search button first before asking the questions. smile
