Not a true story but a lesson to learn

Postby deltarho[1859] » Feb 08, 2018 20:03

Me: I have just tried this command line and it doesn't work.

Him/Her: Let me have a go. It works for me.

Me: What did you do?

Him/Her: Ah, you haven't got the right attitude, have you?

Me: What?

Him/Her: Well, you have to have a geek attitude otherwise it won't work.

Me: A geek attitude?

Him/Her: Yes. You probably had one and then lost it. Go to the corner of the room and face the corner in the lotus position. Now breathe using hath yoga and when breathing out repeat the mantra "I am a geek". Do that for 10 minutes and come back.

Me: I am back- let me have another go. Wow, it works now.

Him/Her: Told you.

Me: So, I am now a born again geek.

Him/Her: Er, not quite.

Me: Do you have to do that?

Him/Her: No, I never lost it.

With Him/Her out of hearing distance.

Me: Well, I know what to do in future. Poor old Him/Her - being a geek all the time must be dreadful.

@MrSwiss

I did not log on and saw your post.

The Tip is how to write command lines that work. The Trick is to sit in the corner in the lotus position....

What is it that do you not understand?

@deltarho....,

where is the source code?

You've clearly picked the wrong Forum-Section: "Community Discussion" (the proper one)!

When I hover over 'Tips and Tricks' I get a pop-up: "Source-code only - please, don't post questions here."

I stand corrected: I had not noticed that before. When you get to my age you will be probably not hover over anything too long - time is of the essence.

To admin: Please move this thread to the 'Community Discussion' forum and please accept my utmost and sincerest apologies. <grin>
