Re: Unanswered questions

from what I know it doesnt really work that way, basically people have
lives and like living them, if someone sees your message and can
instantly fire off a reply, you'll most likely get one, but sometimes
your question can be answerable by only a certain few people, who
might not read your message, cause you have to consider maybe they get
1000 emails a day, you think in the noise, your singular message will
get read?

so basically, you have to fire off your message and HOPE it hits A
TARGET, SOMEWHERE, it's a long shot, but tahts just the way I play the
game, you could go onto IRC and find someone to help you in real time
terms, that's always better sometimes than posting to groups, cause
you'll have a limited audience and if your question is mildly
interesting, you'll get a reply too
