Angry Just need to rant

Please Login to Remove!

Ive been a member of this forum for a few years now and it has helped me so many times I cant keep count.

BUT all my answers have been found using that lovely link called SEARCH!!!!

Ive just wasted half an hour of my life reading stuff that the answer to is already freely available using the search button!!!

Sorry for the rant but I dont post here often and was feeling left out
Oh and still have a hangover from a very messy weekend!!! So everyone is getting an ear bashing today

Enjoy your day today people and for thos of you that actaully contribute info that I find of use Thanks

Great rant! The search feature is probably the most underutilized feature of the forum.

The double post feature is probably the most over-utilized feature

A feature is a bug with seniority.

The search seems to link back to the same tireless problems that don't even link to mine.

Generally a read of the FAQ will clear up many newbie problems and answer most of their initial questions.

Our search function is also a great tool as mentioned above. And also, don't forget, Google is your friend! I find many answers to questions using Google.

I wish half the people I spoke to each day new about google... or this website. From my experience people only have the internet to use Facebook/Myspace/Twitter. Then again, if they knew the power of the internet I wouldn't have a job.

Wirelessly posted (overwhelmingly stressed)

I can't lie EZ is handicapped at using google!

I really should learn to use it more efficiently!

But EZ does search!
