it's a new day and i already gave my direct sorry to the elf so let's hopefully drop this although if you want to grudge you can go for it!
basically what i was trying to get at yesterday was that this thread seems discouraging to newbies. it def gave me the impression "these guys jump on newbies for asking things they know nothing about"
and it's the whole "there is never a stupid question" thing, where it seems like there are a million questions here that would be deemed stupid
i don't know - it's a first impression that i'm not sure you helpful peeps want to give
from my standpoint - i know very little about computers etc. - so this site contains a WORLD of information i can BARELY comprehend - so reading through and searching only does so much for me......i need answers in simple terms my wittle brain can grasp.
i'm looking for the right chip - quickly i found that big chart showing them side to side
if these were guitars.....or stereo equip....or something i know about, this would be a great chart. however that chart tells me very little.....it's like....a different language...
so, even though i did read up on this stuff - i still have no answers or true understanding
i don't think i'll ever get a full understanding of this stuff - just enough of a simpleton explanation that ultimately allows me to reach my goal.....how i got there will probably remain a mystery to me
so there's a little more of some newb perspective for you all
i did tons of reading here before my very first post.....it just isn't quite as helpful as you may think when you are starting with a blank page in your mind
there is still more for me to read - but a lot of it is like reading an advanced physics book or something......lots of "jibberish" to me
so i asked some redundant questions - i can't spend a month trying to teach myself this stuff - i just haven't the time - and i need to mod sooner than later for financial reasons.
i never lay demands when asking for help - but going with the assumption that this forum is for help - i thought that no questions asked in a decent manner should be looked down upon. surely there are plenty that come and ask a quickie without doing any reading prior - but i DID do plenty of reading......and how can you determine that to be true??? you can't! because i'm really no smarter than when i started reading....i just have a bunch of names and terms in my head that confuse me
oi whatever.....my cuz was supposed to come up from NC this week and put a chip in
he's not coming so now it's all me to do this and it makes me nervous! i wouldn't have really had to learn ANYTHING if he came and did it!!!
sheeet - right now he's reading up on playing backups for the gamecube! now that is something I'll NEVER attempt to learn on my own! it's either....come and set me up....or....i'll never do this
hey!! - here's a quick question on the top of my head.......and if this is a "bad" question for legal reasons please let me know
---i know you can play n64 games with an emulator or whatever........does anyone know if "South Park Rally" is out there to get ???? no need to tell me where - just.....have you seen it??? was a great game that my girl would kill to play again!
anyhoo - anyone need any audio/video, music, financial, or reptile advice?!!?
