    I know you have kids, a little brotha, a secretary at work who no matter how many times you give them an answer or tell them something, they won't bother to put the effort into remembering cause it's just easier to ask someone again. The problem is giving an answer takes effort and some people will take offense if you are going to ask them to put in that effort without first trying to put in that effort yourself. I favor an approach where I'll give a man a fish and after his belly is full, I'll try and teach him to fish. So on the fill ya belly end, read this:

    The other problem with repeat threads is that it clogs the board. If I was to go do a title search on "Best Bluetooth Headset" you will find a whole lot of threads with just about the exact same title. This makes it hard for even the veterans to search as we have to tumble thru nemerous threads to find the 67 line detailed naswer we just typed last week.

    Another problem is specific, "essential for what". If you do a title search on "essential applications" the thread you will come up with has "Pocket Tunes" as the Numboer One essential app. Now to me, "tunes" is no more essential to me getting my work done that "having a boat" so I gotta say "no" to that being "essential". So the question I gotta ask is what do you want to do with it.

    First thing I would suggest is that you install Northglide's Uninstall Manager. This allows you to easily uninstall any mistakes

    While this may not seem relevant as the thread title is Newbie Movimg from 600 - 650", everything from Step No. 9 down in message 3 will apply to you

    http://discuss.treocentral.com/showthread.php?t=108492

    Utility wise, I suggest the "Last Best Utilities" thread

I know you've all seen the same questions a thousand times, but snarkiness just makes you look like a'holes. TC is definitely far, far more clique-y than 1SRC or Brighthand.
    all i originally did was ask a simple question about y new treo and related software ..... I DID NOT KNOW YOU SHOULD SEARCH FIRST ! jeez , then people started losing there manners and acting rude because according to some i am too lazy to search ..... wrong , i just didn't know how forums work . i mean , its only my second day here . so to all kind words out there , thankx for your help , to the disrespectful and uneducated .... get a life , seriously . i genuinely did not know how forums work since this is my first time online on a forum ...so excuse me for asking a F****N question .

    That's not true. In general, people are helpful. But crap, how many times must you answer the same BASIC questions??

    here are my .02 :

    ok , no problem , but my question is this : DID I KNOW THIS !? no , didn't , in case no one noticed , I AM NEW TO FORUMS . so excuse me for not knowing . jeez . i understand and will abide by these rules or leave but i genuinely did not know . so all those that said rude remarks towards me i would ask that you notice that i'm new and learn to respect people . its that simple , so i will now appreciate to no longer recieve comparisons to small children or anything else than a grown man who just had no knowledge of forum policies .

    why don't you go to some threads that have some information you want instead of whining and moaning here?

    Well, at least you have a sense of humor and are lightening up a little bit!

    I may yet welcome you.
