I still need HELP!

Mar 11, 2001, 12:27pm
No no no its like this, the CD is worth about $0.50. The box is worth about
$500. The software is so bad that for full install, they pay you $300, and
for upgrade, because there is one less feature, they pay you $400. The
license key is like the other half-of-a-dollar. (I mean how much can I guy
get paid to do this: ASLKDJ23932O9U8WOKNSF and then put hyphens in it?

If you are going to leave, I wish you would just. Does this mean that I
need to simply not check the newsgroups for the next 11 days? Even if I
filter Lane, all the replies and such will still be there, and since I am on
a 56K connection even if I do not read every message, the headers still have
to download. Can't wait till I get my news client finished.......

Hey everyone...

I have been out of the loop a little while, but I guess I am going to step
back into it (WITH MY NEW DSL CONNECTION1!!!!!!!!!). :-)

Anyways when I logged into AW this morning, I downloaded build 375... Is
there any way for me to check out what is in this version?

Thanks :-)

Wow, this looks like a useful newsreader! Maybe I won't have to write my

<snip>

I remember there used to be something called etiquette... Miriam-Webster
defines etiquette as the conduct or procedure required by good breeding or
prescribed by authority to be observed in social or official life. My
private interpretation of this reads "When out in public or in an official
setting such as a meeting, be considerate of others." Perhaps not all of us
have broadband? It doesn't take all the time in the world to download 50K,
but being connected at 45.2 KBPS like I am now, and being able to download
at about 5 KBPS, it would take 10 seconds to download an HTML post. It, in
my opinion, would be more considerate of other users to give a plain-text
post that is 1K or 2K that gives a brief description, and a "For more
information, go to www.blah.com/moreinfo.shtml" if they care to learn more.
Just think of it as simple, common courtesy -- something like holding the
door for ladies and washing your hands in the bathroom, etc.

Also, about pop-up ads and such, if I really want to know about something, I
will put up with them. However, as they do drive some people away, e-mail
me personally at jviper at jtsoft.net if you would like me to do some research
into hosting sites with few or no ads.

Does anyone know of any good web sites with some common netiquette
definitions? I think that would be a good reference.

Common Courtesy. Like I said before, It takes a good 10 seconds to download
a newsgroup post -- its more fun to not have to wait to read a message.

Another point that I forgot to mention in the netiquette speech above is
that some people do not have HTML news readers -- I use a news reader that
does not support HTML. Why not use Netscape or Outlook Express? Netscape
is just about the buggiest thing I have ever seen (although 6 is pretty
nice, I will stick with Mozilla) and OE is just clunky, and the filters do
not work.

666N? I do believe that is the garden of King Punisher... Back before the

syndicate of vandals. Check it out at the AW history pages at

A few months after I actually got Internet access, in the winter of 1997, I
was in a ReBoot news group (more than likely alt.rv.reboot) and Lightwave
mentioned it. I checked it out, and did not become a citizen for a few
months, and finally, on March 9, 1998 at 9:01 PM, I decided that $20 was
worth it

No Software Renderer?

May 22, 2001, 9:13am
I was just reading the AW 3.2 help stuff...

How does he mean that there is no software renderer in 3.1? I run it on
my laptop all the time, and my laptop has NO 3-D renderer, and it pops up
with a red X box that says something like "Warning, AW will run in
Software mode." Sure, its sluggish, but it works........

Location of next reunion?

Jul 17, 2001, 9:47am
Raleigh, NC, is not right on the coast... It is about 200 (?) miles from
it. There are nice hotels, and a nice big convention center (maybe a little
too big... the Embassy Suites is in Cary, right near Raleigh, and they have
party rooms and such. The company I work for (TogetherSoft Corp) just had
quarterly team meetings there. Very nice place. Oh and did I mention its
only about 30 miles from me? hehe ;-)

To Whom It May Concern... [long!]

Jul 18, 2001, 8:57am
Hey, I was typing out a message to Goob in ICQ and I realized I had thought
of something to say after all. Here goes...

Lovely message in the Newsgroups. Where I work, TogetherSoft Corporation,
has one main core value, and that is to Serve with integrity and heart.
Also, the organizational structure is different. Rather than the employee
doing the manager's bidding the the VPs doing the CEO's bidding, it is kind
of reversed. Peter Coad(CEO) says at the Quarterly Team Meetings on Monday,
"What can I do to serve you, the employees of TogetherSoft?" and I know
this man, he is very true to the core values. Anyways, serving goes down
the line: the CEO does what he can to serve the VPs, and the Managers do
what they can to serve the employees, and everyone does what they can to
serve the customer as an individual, all doing it with intrgrity and heart.
This company has grown from 35 to 442 in 1.5 years and has a good financial
history, to say the least, and has just been ruching like wildfire into the
market. Plus, they have a good product -- of course, nothing would happen
without that ;-)

If only Rick and JP could realize that greediness is not the way to go, but
serving the customer is, and realizing that it is better to retain a happy
customer by serving them EVEN IF it causes them to lose a little bit of
money because in the end, for certain, the happy customer (me, you, citizens
is what I am referring to here, not PCDJ or what have you) will bethere to
back them up when they are not doing so well, and continue to be supportive
when they are doing very well. I can see how tempting it would be to be
greedy at the level of some people in AWCom, however, greediness will make
them want more money, sacrificing customer after customer along the way, and
if they ever do hit a nice big deal guaranteed to make them gazillions,
there won't be anyone left, and they suddenly are a gazillion bucks in debt.

New Objects ! Alpha World must enlarge it object path !

Jul 25, 2001, 12:58am
I know this works on 4.0 and up:

<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> ... </table>

If you want good-looking borders (instead of those awful 3D things):

<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tr><td bgcolor="#000000">
<table cellspacing="1" cellpadding="1">
<tr>
<td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">Ima Tablecell</td>
</tr>
</table?
</td></tr></table>

Makes a nice, one-pixel thick border around all the text, and works in at
least NS4, IE4, and probably most other browsers. Only M$ product that I
truly believe is actually worth using is IE simply because of what it allows
you to be able to do, and you can do it much more easily. Plus, most of its
features and how they are coded makes sense. Netscape really needs to catch
up. NS6 came close, but again, no cigar...

Jul 25, 2001, 8:27am
I must admit that IE is a bit TOO lenient sometimes, but most of the time,
it really does make life easier... (of course, it doesn't make a difference
since we have to develop to the lowest common denominator anyways.) I
haven't had a chance to see IE6, although I hear it is absolutely atrocious.
The deal is that if Netscape can get their act together and make a product
better than IE, I will use it. Right now, this is not the case.
