No, it is a way of teaching. By asking the student to explain the question in detail, the student will often discover for him/herself what the solution is.

It is a time-consuming method and therefore not used often, but in a forum like this I think it is the perfect way to teach. Instead of putting all the burden on the teacher, it forces the student to work it out himself (with a little guidance). A reasonable way of sharing the burden I think, since I am doing this on a volountering basis. If tinman47 paid for my time, I would/could have provided him with a straight yes/no answer, but he would not have learned anything substantial.

Or, when the student already knows the answer, just wastes his time and makes you look a little stupid and more than a little bit strange? There're ways to teach by asking questions while still making it obvious that you're trying to teach, that way people who aren't your "pupils" aren't trying to answer your questions, Socrates.

Me, as it was going to be an endless story, as he re-edited them, you also re-edit and so on. I also deleted Tinman47's triple post. It is put clearely in the forum rules that they shouldn't double-triple post. I've already warned enough about that.
Sue me.

And I officially warn all the peons here, double-triple-quadruple-whatever postings in a short time span will be deleted. If you want to rise your post count post in an intelligent manner.

Mods and of course Admins are excluded from this rule.

Let there be known: I'm suing dosraider! :P

Anyway, this is really straying off that thin and obscure topic it had. Get back on it!

You can't split a lounge topic! It'll just make Tinman think he can have more than one useless thread running at a time!

Oh, but it can be splitted with someone else as first poster -(topic starter)-.

Would Gamer also want a 'lounge' topic?


Did you peeps realise we have a new smiley? :lolcat:

I've been waiting for people to find that for a while now. :) (there're a lot of "extras" I hide in various places as rewards for diligent searchers)

You announced it in a thread about 4 weeks ago. You said - "We need a lolcat smiley"...

If I had no life, I'd add secret messages in every "normal" single smiley, and constantly change the file size... maybe put a part of the "secret code" in each one, and change it weekly. But for now, I think I'll just add a lolcat smiley. (cause we need one) :lolcat:

I dunno, I think on one hand it's great that kids who never had an opportunity to have a computer before will finally be able to have one. But I have to wonder how many of these will end up in kids' hands and not taken by corrupt governments nstuff ... hopefully that won't happen.

What kind of corrupt government official would want to be seen carrying around a MyFirstLaptop like that?

And come on, we all know that the kids will just use them for porn, anyway.
