View Full Version : And the Hate Melts Away

10th October 1999, 09:39
I am SO glad to see all the G400 hate posts(both here and in newsgroups)fade away. It must be hard to beat a dead horse when the horse is running as fast as the wind.

please don't destroy my fantasy. I know there will be faster cards comming out and the such, but I love my G400, and I think it loves me.

Ok enough childish trolling in this thread. Ant, listen. What you call trolling is "whining". And I whine because I want better stuff. And do I get better stuff when I whine? Yes. And when that's done (i.e. now), I can instead of whining, help other with problems (i.e. what I do in other threads now).

Ant, please don't tell people to ignore me. I'm merely humoring you http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Please read more postings from me, and you'll soon enough see the pattern.

Bunnymud, it's nice to see you have a great relationship with your card. I assume that's because it mostly does what you need it to do. That's not the case here between me and my Max.

Enough of this, have I proven myself less childish, Ant?

Thought so


I may be wrong, please relabirate me.

No that's what YOU think. People can complain without whining, but you definately troll and try to get a rise out of people, I've seen the pattern and that's trolling http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

They don't write any more hate post for one and only reason....THEY KNOW THAT THEY DON'T HAVE THE BEST CARD.
We use to have Riva owners all the time here in MURC who tried to convince us that the matrox card we bad and that you sould buy Riva TNT's......WE DONT HAVE ANY MORE http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

D@mn why did Matrox have to release the 5.30 driver Friday as promised. How dare they. What are we supposed to do now, that we can't whinne about them not being out at 00:00:01 on the international date line. Such arogance. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif
Guess we'll just have to install them and be happy. Hmmm, now there's an idea!
Unless we don't listen to the install instructions and various advice on how to do it!?! Then we can find things to blame Matrox for and whinne away, instead of getting a real life. Yeah, that sound much better to some.

Can you feel the sarcasm?

Ant, you have your opinion, and I have mine. That's it. Social behaviour is incredible complex and impossible to judge. At least to the very tiny little word.

I can't back myself up with anything else than try to explain how I though, and what I wanted.

I fired things up because I really thought it was nesessary for getting the right changes/impressions. Damn man, I too have heard the G200 ICD horror story and it looked like hammering was the only way to get big M back up. You have always said Matrox was a great company, and that made me think the only reason the G200 didn't have a good ICD was because of the lack of "complaints".

They have now a good OGL ICD for the win9x os, but what about us winNT/win2K users? I got two blue screens in one hour just because I tried to surf these forums at the same time as I benched Quake3!

I'm shit tired of win9x (just check my profile and view my win2k fan page), I know Matrox can do better, and I belive I can whi err... complain myself to a good win2k driver.

Ant, I'm sorry to say this, but if you where a good forum administrator, you would have been able to see my feelings the way I described them above and set me correct instead of calling me a trolling childish mind. As I said, you didn't see my pattern...

Let me sum this up. You're the boss around here, you want me to complain/whine less. Done. Just "awaken" me and see if I agree before you tell people to ignore me.

Mark F, just wait till win2K releases... I want dualhead and dvdMAX in win2k!!! (that was a joke http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif)

Folks, we got that Beta ICD driver because we whined that much. I'm certain about this. They released the 5.21, and thought not much more of it. Then when they heard all the hammering in the forums, they desided to put up the Beta that got the good scores. Would they have done that of there were only a "few complaints"? I don't think so, that's why I flamed it up (just read some of the threads, damn even the posters got tired of my "39% matrox dev rel.... etc)

I may be wrong, but then I didn't see it until now.

and don't reply me with anything like "no no that's what YOU think look at this post etc" I've been both whining, and humoring/aiding to this forum. Please don't forget that. And, when I learn more about the Max and it's problems/solutions I'll also be here to help other people.

Oh I see it's my fault you post childish crap. Damn I should have known, hey if you can't blame Matrox blame Ant. I'm not here to baby sit the put on feelings of people, if you want someone to hold your hand and wipe your nose then you are in the wrong place this is not a nursery.

These forums are here for people to discuss, if you want to complain yourself to a good Win 2K driver what the hell are you doing it in here for? Go to the people who write the damn thing ie Matrox here is their URL http://www.matrox.com/mga/. A complaint is not a whine, a whine is an attitude.

10th October 1999, 16:51
I've seen your posting go from somewhat helpful, and humorous (I often wondered what you smoked before some of your old tag lines), to useless. You also made your opinions clear about what you wanted/expected. There was no problem with that. We're all entitled to our opinion, and when stated in the proper manner, people will respect your opinion (even if they don't agree with it).

But lately, you have been neither helpful, nor humorous. Most of your replys have been whiney little one-line stabs, with no helpful content at all. Any post of length you have made has been nothing but a bitching session. Of late, you have become just another annoying whiner, whose posts I have simply begun to ignore...

Sorry TishFish, I do like ya, but I have to agree with the majority here... you aren't being too helpful by complaining/whining on the boards...

It would probably be more useful to collect MURC-ers for an e-mail campaign directly to Matrox, actually... and anyway... if this strategy of yours was successful in the past, it's because we <u>all</u> were complaining... You might notice that you aren't finding a groundswell of grass-roots support here...that's a sure indicator of the need for a change in tactics.

Think about it, eh? You might also notice that posters are thus far being rather nice about saying that you're getting a bit on our nerves.. you yourself know that we usually are not that nice, because usually the annoyance has no credit with us. You, it seems, do. Don't use it up.

Holly, honestly trying to help...
