    Saga is the right word. Is this guy specially challenged or mentally
    needy or whatever the current PC term for a retard is? He seems to
    need validation for every choice in his life.

    Jesus dude, just buy a computer and STFU.

    I sure wish he would stop with all the freaking separate threads. It's
    getting old fast.

    Yeah, but the guy is a Mac user. You know how they are, Jolly! They buy
    Macs because they're not too bright and, after they buy a Mac, they're
    not too rich either.

    So, it's "Will I get Quicken for free?", "how can I save 50¢ on this FW
    cable?", "is it OK if I return it after use?", "is this $5 version of
    Windows really legal?" and so on.

    You have to cope. Toomorron, more questions of the same type will ensue.

    That's why Macs are great fun!

    Agreed. Esp. since most of what he wants to know is within a hop kip and
    a jump via Apple.com and/or Google.

    This is nothing compared to his Usenet heyday from 2000-2006, when he
    was also a world class nym shifter and let a lot of weird things be know
    about what should have been his private life.

    A couple of us actually worked on a web page to keep tracking of all his
    posting identities. We stopped in 2006 but I never took it down:

    Does a Google search on VMware take longer than posting a question
    asking its price and then looking and reading responses?

    Right. So while we've been extremely generous with our time for you,
    could you at least do the simpler tasks yourself? You'd even learn
    something along the way.

    He's outsourcing due to laziness. And we're dumb enough to help.

    Yes thats right I acted like a child in those days and had much to
    learn. If I have offended you by my questions, I will say that I have
    posted much on the Apple forums in place of this group (over the past 5
    years) and no one has made an issue out of posting questions. But for
    some reason Mike the Kernel panics have not been as frequent as of late
    and dont ask me to explain it. Watched Spider Man 3 and part of Spider
    Man 1 last night without a panic which is amazing. The first movie was
    so good I have seen it so many times and it rarely gets boring.
