    Yo DP, I think he got the point.
    If a person wants to lead other people into following his setup in an exact step-by-step fashion, s/he has every option of writing a precise worklog in the Show Off Your Project area.
    As a matter of fact, this behavior should be encouraged -- it might minimize outbursts of random newbie questions and requests.

    Yeah, but how often has someone asked "What are Maheriano's personal preferences?"?


    because I bet it sure as hell ain't Frequently.


    So it still can't be a FAQ

    Consider this a well-deserved nelson.

    Right you are. This thread, however, is not a worklog. It's one person's recommendadtions. Thre's nothing wrong with that, either.
    However, it shouldn't be considered a blanket "This is what you need" document, either.

    The way I see it, the OP made some major mistakes here.
    - He didn't RTFM (The M1ATX issue makes that patently obvious)
    - He didn't research enough to ensure his system was going to work properly
    - He didn't test the system prior to installation.

    Maheriano came into this hobby very recently full of enthusiasm and excitement about this project. That enthusiasm and excitement led to rushed purchases, a rushed install and ultimately, a system that's not working to expectation. He even asked lost of questions and has been pointed a number of times to the various informational resources. Were they utilized? That's a question I can't answer. Maybe the information wasn't clear or too technical. Maybe someone chose to spoon-feed him before he researched on his own.

    I don't know where the communication broke down here. I do know that there are countless others that do research their projects, plan them, test them and install them and don't have these problems. So what's the difference. No offense, Maheriano, but it's the user. In tech support we call it a PEBCAK error: Problem Exists Between Chair And Keyboard.
    Maheriano, at least, didn't damage any equipment or set his car on fire or curl his hair from an electrical jolt or worse. That's a good thing. The issues he has and the mistakes he made can all be rectified with a little education and effort.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I'd venture to bet this is the root of most of the problems.

    Probably true. This guy couldn't get iGuidance to embed in RR, asked countless questions without bothering to try it on another skin to see whether it's a skin error or not, then even blamed my app for breaking it.

    I didn't blame ****, I asked what exactly your application does, it seems useless.I like the skin I have and MGD has iGuidance working perfectly so I'm not giving up. I'll get it working.

    Don't ******* lie. I saw your post blaming it on my app before you editted it.

    So now because you couldn't get it to work, "it seems useless"? Don't use it then. I could give a ******* crap.
