Everything takes time. You get upset because the software and the
network you get to use for free is not perfect and you wonder why.
I get upset because you make me explain to you over and over again how
things work and why we've made the choices we've made with respect to
I have to do this instead of actually fixing the problems you complain
about, you know.. Actually, I don't have to do it. I don't even know why
I'm doing it... So don't push your luck, or no one will bother to answer
you at all.
How do we get to the point where I can stop answering the same questions
from you over and over again?
I've tried to document everything I've done. Maybe that documentation is
still over your head, but you're not really telling me how or where it
is over your head.
It seems we might need a more effective translator between us before we
can expect to come to an understanding.
