Hola, Raul; como estás? Christof? Are you well?
David, please, forgive-em touching this point again, because it's not this forum's focus, but you know that sometimes I pull it a bit off line so we can understand that there is another being at the other side of the line exactly like us and reading what we are writing. I sometimes read what I don't want to, but I'm sure I'm writing stuff with the purpose of being read and cause the best reaction.
I'd like to have a chance to be in a meeting with everybody in this forum, you know? I've already made a few intl. calls just to have a chance to talk to some guys in here (actually five, so far). I like keeping communication at a voice level, it seems to be the best way. Also, we would all be able to show ourselves to each other.
And I feel not even a bit of scare when daring to dream about this possibility because I am exactly the same person I try to express when writing.
And the only way to proof it is by having the chance to be with others. I used to be afraid of the language barrier, but there are so many languages (even when programming) that we must just take care with our feelings when writing (or speaking) and everything else is gonna be fine.
Maybe others do not agree with, but I'll keep posting for as long as I believe it's useful somehow, even if some posts are just for fun. But I'm always using my own name: Luiz Cláudio Vieira. And I vouch everything I write under my name.
I know some guys may not like reading this, but I am interested only in those who will read this and feel comfortable with themselves. I cannot think there is "room" in this site for rage and madness. Not that we are a family in the very sense of the word, but all actual "contributors" in here want to take care of each other's ACTUAL calculator-related problems, when they do not offer themselves to solve them.
And this is too close to a family relationship. Actual family relationship.
I know I need to improve my English skills, but I am sure I am always trying to find a way to put everything in the best sense, from what I believe it is a good sense. Sometimes people confuse themselves with the way they express their feelings, but if we believe each one has his own purpose of doing what one believes is correct, so we may also have already done the same many times, without having the chance to get back and overwrite. What's done is done.
Raul, gracias; you mentioned my congratulations for adding an HP42S when you bought yours, right? I felt glad, because I know it's a good calculator and I like to know that guys like you, with the skills to use it, are able to have one. And I am sure you are one more head to help solving problems. I read a post a few days ago about the HP41 card reader, but Tony Duell, Gordon Dyer and David Smith were already there and helping. What would I do there? I read and felt myself relieved with the happy ending. Actually.
About others' rage? John and Paul wrote a song about what I feel in these situations:
"When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me speaking words of wisdom..."
