bazzer: For what it's worth, I interpreted his comment as intended.

Imagine in real life, you know something costs $3. You tell your friend you need said part, he says "Oh, they have it at that shop down the road, it's $12.98." You might not say "$12.98? Damn!"? I suppose you'd say "$12.98 for a 10cm cable? This is overpriced!"

If I said "$12.98? Damn!", I also wouldn't expect my friend to reply with "$12.98 is too expensive for you? Are you poor? Maybe you shouldn't have a computer at all. Oh, and stop going to McDonalds!"

;)



Thanks bazzer.

freitasm: So what's the problem with you writing "$12.98 for a 10cm cable? This is overpriced!" instead of "12.98? Damn".

The way I read your comment was "$12.98 is too expensive".

This is text-based. If you want people to understand what you mean WRITE WHAT YOU MEAN.

Get over it. I know you may feel it's being picky, but people should really write things instead of thinking everyone else got a crystal ball and psychic powers.




"get over it" LMAO, thats like saying "grow up" it immediatley makes the poster feel more mature when they are not.   Do you read posts and hear a voice in your head? or is it just a monotone robotic speech that cant make sense of the most likely way something is written?


Or maybe your right all along, maybe i should have made it more clearly by going "12.98? daaaah-aaammmn!"

This is going way off topic. We already know a) what you wrote, b) what I replied and thought you wrote, c) what you actually wanted to write.

If this is going to extend beyond this point and get personal (as per your last post), then let me know so I can issue the ban sooner than later.

Yeah, I got some off dealexterme with my last order - along with some horribly crap AC adaptors that have a molex on the end of them they run drives fine. And a esata to sata cable and I can run the drives loose.
