@ naythinjuromeh

 

Factually, the many positive comments on the usefulness of all my nForce guides for OS X 10.5.x, 10.6.x, 10.7.x, 10.8.x, and 10.9.x far outweigh the very few negative comments, such as yours.......in any event, no one is forcing you to read the guide, even less use it........

 

However, if and when you decide to read and follow what I have written, asking me for help by means of specific questions when you become "confused" or "stuck" at any stage in the guide, rather than saying "what you expect me to do" and "what you would have done in my place" and "what I should now be doing", remembering that I have given and continue to give freely of my time to help IM members in return for the help I have received/receive from other IM members, then I will respond to your posts to help you (even re-activating download links when required)......my help is a freely offered gift NOT an expected obligation!
