someone beat me too it posting the barest of details, having bagged "the fastest finger on the buzzer" slot, they then go back and fill the details  ::) ;D ;D

Then when you write out and post the details they originally omitted you find their post has been edited, thereby making yours appear idiotic  ;D

BUT - whatever the outcome - YOU have taken the trouble to search and to respond.   ;)

I'm quite a swift typist, but not madly accurate, especially with digits, so I always have to proof-read carefully before consigning anything to "post".
But being swift with a response isn't the most important thing, is it? Thinking round a query can often result in people proffering information that the original poster may not have specifically asked for, but actually finds invaluable.
And remember: being "quick on the draw" doesn't mean that you always hit the target. Carry on doing your bit, and with the rest of us, enjoy the chase, johnhood!

I just love the rootschat community, serious when needed and funny where appropriate.
