I really don't understand why this is such a weird issue. I tried something, it didn't work. Then life and other financial obligations got in the way. Now I've got some time and I'm looking for advice on how to do it right.
No one would ever fault you for doing so...........but*
I should not have said that the project was; compete and working until it was done. That was a mistake. I admit that and I'm sorry I did it. Like I've said several times now, I was overconfident and sure it would work. I was wrong. I was wrong to just assume that it would work and I was wrong to make that post.
Therein lies the reason for the response you received. This DIY Forum depends upon honest evaluations, and the relating of correct procedures. It's all too frequently that dissemination of incorrect or purposefully misleading information is done intentionally...as also are the times when fellows like Kenneth come aboard incognito to either promote something or create disharmony....or both. This IS a Forum dealing with helping others, and it resides on the Worlds largest A/V Forum Platform, so it carries with it a responsibility that is just a bit more valued than almost any other.
For my own part, your apology is accepted. Truthfully speaking, even among the Forum regulars there is seldom seen such "sorrys' let alone abject admissions of being "wrong" .
But still, I really don't understand why there is so much suspicion and questioning. I'm not trying to sell anything. All I did was ask for help.
In believing everything else you've said, that includes your lack of knowledge of this Forum's History....as well as the intrusions it has suffered. They have not been pleasant, and yeah...we tend to watch out a bit for the telltale signs someone is scamming or posting untruthful information. Suspicion founded in actual experiences is not paranoia.....it's a prudent value. Your postings clicked on all the switches, so that's the reason you were called out.
.............and it didn't do your case any good by even mentioning Kenneth and his crazy stuff. My shoulders still tighten up at the thought of being mistaken for him.
But it's now the past...so why not move on and let's go forward and see if you can actually get something of worth accomplished? I'm bettin' we can!
