Back in the day the forums were very rough, terrible search function (given insanely still has a terrible search function) there was very little options as to get the information quickly and efficiently.
Forums have come a long way and this forum is an example of that. We can quote a previous member, as you and I have done. We can link to other pages where more information can be found. We can upload small files that will make our lives a lil easier, perhaps a lil cooler.
But I don't think I can so easily excuse the new members who chime in on page 89 and say I did everything you said Mysticus but sound doesnt work, and how come multi touch isnt working.
This forum hits you with a HUGE FAQ... you dont have to go digging to find info Mysticus took the guess work out of it. ITS RIGHT THERE. So when I say read from Page 1, I am linking them. I am not getting angry. or trying to be abusive. I am trying to stress to everyone you are taking essentially a PC and turning it into a somewhat functional mac. That being said, I hope someone who is going to undertake such a labour, would at least do his homework.
For instance I need to hook up a monitor to my Mac, Early on I hit the mirror button and whamo distorted screen. Now did I post a question without doing some leg work. OR SCREAM HEY MYSTICUS my samsung is not a mac if it cant do mirroring. NO of course not. I did a simple google search, How to remove saved mirroring prefs from my system. took all of two seconds.
Now if anyone is trying to install mac on their samsung nc10. They will undoubtably come here. Once here they should start from page 1. yes 80 pages is a lot to go thru, it takes a minute to scan each page. I would hope once they got a grasp of whats going on and having read the FAQs at the beginning only then would they install. Simple as that. So I am sorry if I came off as belittling. or angry. It's a simple fact that people want an easy fix. This new forum MC made will obviously reduce the redundancy. But until it is up and running Read from page 1 thank you.
I have to agree here, I've been part of this thread from near the beginning and every time I have a problem a simple Google search fixes it, and now insanelymac has been updated with a much better search engine, there really isn't any excuse for not doing a search first before asking. Plus I've actually read all 86 pages and just feel I have to say that you can't expect Mysticus to be your personal osx technician that will be on call 24/7, he has managed to do a lot in these 86 pages and is clearly dedicating more of his time with the new forum.
