That kid has been talking about identd for the last seven hours. Finally people in #openbsd got pissy and told him to read the goddamn docs "again".

My commentary:

< bda> armega: I think the problem is you don't actually know what it is you're trying to do, and are therefore banging rocks against things which would be better served by some form of ritualistic licking.
< bda> This is a common problem. I run into it often.
< bda> Documentation alleviates the issue.

This was a butchered conversation... I asked if that was an actual help page for one... what a crack head!

thanks dhartmei :) thats actually a help page

And I just love it when you go into an IRC channel where people have no point to the channel... there are 50 million people in the channel just to tell you ... RTFM.. whats the point.. if you don't want to use the channel as a source of answering a simple question then don't allow public access, +m it, post in the topic this is not a help channel, etc... just use your brain.. it seems the smarter the people are in the channel the less they actually ever want to help someone.. Like there actually above everyone else just cause they know more about 1 subject.. I find this is true mostly for gamers that do nothing that sit behind the pc all day and night and chat online when there MMORPG is sitting idle on there other monitor...
