Discussion in 'Windows 64 Bit' started by Charlie Russel - MVP, Oct 29, 2005.

  1. How many forum members does it takes to change a light bulb?
    1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed

    14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light
    bulb could have been changed differently

    7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs

    1 to move it to the Lighting section

    2 to argue then move it to the Electricals section

    7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs

    5 to flame the spell checkers

    3 to correct spelling/grammar flames

    6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" .. another 6 to
    condemn those 6 as stupid

    2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"

    15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb"
    is perfectly correct

    19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this
    discussion to a lightbulb forum

    11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs
    and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum

    36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy
    the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique
    and what brands are faulty

    7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs

    4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected

    3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this
    group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group

    13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all
    headers and signatures, and add "Me too"

    5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot
    handle the light bulb controversy

    4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

    13 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about
    light bulbs"

    1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start
    it all over again.

  6. And 1 to argue the merits of web-based versus OE newsgroups plus another to
    recommend Mozilla.
    Colin Barnhorst, Oct 29, 2005
  7. 1 to code all the extra page handling that's needed to do it in a 64-bit

    2 to post the information that prereleases of beta already light up your
    stuff for you.

    1 to warn the 2 who posted information about prereleases, because policy is
    to keep everyone in the dark.
