    hey, i don't mind helping noobs, i even feel slightly guilty flaming them, but when it's so easy nowadays to find out HTML, CSS and JS for oneself, I kinda take exception to the incessant "do this for me" type of posts. crikey, when I started web coding we didn't have this new fangled internetwork and had to rely on good ol' fashioned chalk and slate. why should they have it any easier, is what I say. harrrumph!

    Yeah, or like this one. I've seen that question a few times. When will people learn?

    There seems a depressing proportion of stupid users who relate somehow to the UK, in various places online.

    Politics and elite h4xx0rz aside, sometimes I wonder if this country's general ignorance and consumer helplessness has already surpassed the US. Sad times we live in.

    It goes without saying that I echo most of the chants of "moron" already stated with regard to recently spotted threads.

    Oh I don't know. I think we'll hold that prestigious title for quite some time.

    Explain your problem instead of asking how to do what you decided was the solution.

    Is this a first? The original thread subject was the poster's username

    [edit]

    Wow, ASPFree's color scheme is so much nicer than Dev Sheds.
