Hi Dan -
I was trying to be mean to this gentleman. It drives me crazy when people work with high technology equipment, and simply won't read the manual. Every post that I replied with was just trying to push him to read the manual. Many of my aggressive responses on these forums is based on "don't be lazy". The attitude of many people unfortunately is "can't you just tell me the answer - I have to go to my bowling league tonight, and don't have time to figure this out". I don't like reading manuals either - but it's part of the job.

Hi Bob;

I totally applaud your attitude and grasp where you are coming from. In my house my kids have grown up hearing me constantly say "If you want to play you've got to pay". Unfortunately the culture of entitlement and cutting corners is most prevalent. I was at an event recently where a lot of the tech positions were being held by students. On my way out I noticed an eng-style interview being taped hand-held, available light. (inside, dark) It wouldn't be noteworthy except that the shooter was almost tripping over a professional tripod and lighting kit on the floor beside him. It is to weep.

Thanks for being The Cow's Voice of Reality Bob.

Dan
