Thank you !  ... many of us (yes, even me) have had troubles with this in the past;  the idea with this forum is to be as inclusive as possible in such a way that everyone feels welcome and in general has a good experience with the Pine products and especially with the Pine community.  

Any time one of us may become grumpy;  happens.  We want to minimize grumpiness whenever possible, and we want to be helpful;  even to noobs. 

We live in a post-modern world where less and less of the population are wanting to search, and more of the population are wanting to get their info in sound bytes and vid clips;  this is only getting worse, not better.

We can all help by educating each other, and by lending a hand with search arguments and advice that will be welcoming and inclusive;  its not easy, but hey, that's why we get paid the big bucks.

Shy

Thanks everyone.



Note:  ... an additional thought which I forgot to post earlier;  some of us are actually hoping that the SBC community (yes, all of it, including Pine, Raspberry PI, ODroid, Rock64, and others) will actually help to "jump-start" gnu+linux education in hardware, software, development, and general coding !  Frankly a flood of new gnu+linux questions is a good thing.  I support the RPi foundation, the PineA64 community and products, and I'm a card-carrying member of the FSF;  I am personally and deeply committed to education and the spread of gnu+linux and computer freedom !  So, personally, I welcome questions from across the board, and I think this is a place where noobs and gurus can grow together !

Again, thanks.
