Camcording editing on Computer

Discussion in 'Video Cameras' started by Topper, Sep 24, 2003.

  1. All I ask is, unless there is a good reason otherwise, your new
    material appears within one screen-worth of the top. If you NEED to
    quote a lot (and if you do, mid-posting will probably be appropriate)
    I'm happy to see your material at the top.


    I will not re-state this preference in future posts.
    I trust others will be able to restrain themselves from re-stating
    theirs! But I doubt it :)

    Well if you were interested in the thread you would already know what had
    been said.

    I've got no problem with other people top posting saves me reading the
    message again which I just read in the previous post.

    Notice how you never get men complaining that a woman left the toilet seat
    down.

    If I start reading a thread and their are ten messages do people really
    prefer to read everything they've already read again and again every time
    just so that the few times you pick up on a thread half way through you can
    catch up easily?

    I'm curious as to why, when there is a right (and recommended) way to do
    something, and a wrong way to do it, some folk will always insist on
    doing it the wrong (or opposite to the recommended) way.

    Do they think it gives them some sort of individuality? I wonder if they
    adopt the same philosophy in their workplace - or for that matter in
    their everyday lives.

    If you'd care to read RFC1855, you'll see that (sensible) snipping is
    recommended.

    When you've used Usenet for a little while you'll notice that many posts
    raise several questions or issues throughout the text. I'd be interested
    in how you'd recommend that responses are given to these various
    questions, when top-posting.

    But apart from that, I am truly surprised that so many people with
    computers haven't yet learnt the basic driving skills - things like
    CTRL/Home and CTRL/End etc. Nor do they seem to have any interest in
    doing so.

    Well think a little bit harder and remember, nobody does nothing without a
    good reason!

    And I'm still waiting for any reasonable reason (even better a good
    reason).

    If you think there's *any* sort of valid reason for top posting, why
    don't you get RFC1855 amended?

    Most would just scroll down. Now what if you are reading the massage / tread
    for the first time - do you read the 'who done it' at the back of a book
    before reading the story or read the jokes punch line before reading the
    joke ?

    Bottom posting also encourages editing of redundant text.....

    That would mean the quotes were not trimmed correctly.
    The idea with quoting is not to quote the previous
    message(s) in its(/their) entirety but just the parts
    that are relevant for understading the context of your
    comment. Only if one fails to do this basic editing
    step properly, there will be too much old text to read
    in each message.

    For example, I did not quote your whole previous message
    above since quoting it in its entirety was not needed for
    understanding the context of my answer. Quotes are merely
    reminders for catching up what is being discussed right
    now; they are not a mechanism for storing the whole thread
    in each and every message.

    You might want to read

    <http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/usenet/brox.html>

    which is quite a good explanation of the related points and
    counterpoints. It gives an answer to your observation, too.

    Morgan I ignore it .
    you only have to look a t his rhylonline site to understand (or not) his
    mentality. I do not doubt his knowledge but question the way he says things!

    The please feel free to kill-file me. You're loss not mine.

    Of course if you did kill-file me you'd not be able to snipe - which is
    about all you're good for.

    You're just pissed because I don't suffer fools gracefully - and you
    work so hard to qualify.

    Jerry's in the same category, but he's in *my* kill-file because he has
    absolutely nothing of value to contribute or anything of interest to say
    - all he can do is snipe. Sad that there's people like that about.
    All he has to do is see a post from me and he starts foot-stamping and
    throwing his toys out of his pram.

    Well not reading the first post first isn't exactly clever is it? talk about
    reading the punchline before the joke, duh!

    [ re top posting ]
    And what if the first post is not available on the readers server, it
    happens for many reasons (how hasn't seen cases of the follow ups reaching a
    server before the original message ?), all you are doing is showing your
    total ignorance of how Usenet works !

    Jukka Aho's response was the only one I've listened to anyway. He, unlike
    everyone else, has bothered to explain and not get het up, so will consider
    his advice.

    Note the date of this quote!

    Have you guys really managed to keep a top-posting thread going for a
    full WEEK?

    Why not do something useful, like ranting at Denbighshire County
    Council? :)
