View Full Version : I feel sorry for Haig

25th April 2000, 22:01
I was reading thru the official matrox forums and it's kind sad the kind of crap he has to put up with. example: http://forum.matrox.com/mgaforum/Forum13/HTML/000136.html

Maybe they should hire Holly to run a soapbox over there. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

I know, it's pathetic - and the most stupid thing about it is these people vent their anger at TECH SUPPORT - what the hell have they got to do with writing windows2000 drivers?

Some people just don't ever learn.


Athlon 650, Biostar board, 128 MB PC133 (Crucial), G400 32 MB DH, SB Live! w/ Digital I/O, 10/100 NIC, lots of case fans, etc...

Send those pinheads over here. We don't HAVE to be nice to them...

Unfortunately this is part of tech support. Dealing with the difficult ones too. Tech support is not easy. Fortunatley we have people like Haig in tech support.

Hah Hah Hah, Hah Hah Hah. My sides hurt from laughing so hard:

"Jeez, even Diamond, creative and 3dfx still support their earlier cards with BIOS revisions and Drivers!"

Diamond?!? Man, this is the hardest I've laughed in a long time. I should thank E-mu for the entertainment.

I could never work in tech. support.

I didn't catch the Diamond bit the first time. Bringing them into this argument certainly seems counterproductive. Haig's response could have been, "OK, from now on our driver and tech support will be just like Diamond's." http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Thanks for thinking of me, Compton, but reading that thread, I think, "You <u>couldn't</u> pay me enough to try to keep order (much less reason) on those boards."

Not to mention that I wouldn't last long anyway... I'm sure they'd frown on me nuking the customers twice daily.... http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

From what I've read, they are regularly deleting posts that are not related to the forum they're in (like rants in the troubleshooting forum).

This is exactly why I occasionally stick my nose in to the soapbox and admonish people for mean posts.

I know I probably sound like a dick when I do, but mean posts suck.

We only call you a dick when your name is actually Dick, moreau http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Does your name sound like it? http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Hey Jord,

Why is it so hard (pardon the pun) for you to know what your dick sounds like? Aren't you guys always thinking with your dicks?

I can't believe how my thread turned out.

Sorry, Gino, can't help you; any sound is usually muffled by my warm, willing fl...errrrr, *ahem* excuse me....

As far as I can tell, slyfox, he doesn't hear such sound himself because by the time the signal has travelled all that way, he's forgotten what he was listening for. Jord certainly can't be blamed for having an attention span shorter than his... thinking apparatus.

So now you know: I'm marrying Jord for both his brains, as he uses the other to whip up a mean Curry Chicken http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/biggrin.gif.

And, yes, Compton, it <u>is</u> a shame... poor Haig gets so much crap http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif, and it's not even <u>interesting</u> crap, like this is http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/icons/icon2.gif !!!

Ah, well, at least he gets paid (hopefully more than enough).

Hey Holly,
