Before you downvote and flag a post, how about instead considering an answer to help the newbie find their way towards an answer? Please help me not think that the sole purpose of a diamond moderator is to run good people off from the SE sites.

The SE network is such a great resource to learn from, however, once you ask "how do I do this?" and they think you're a newb? The normal response Stack Exchange has are its diamond mods do a drive by: vote down, close, and move on without any effort to help the person seeking help.


Ex Navy, biker scum, got a BSEE magna cum laude (with distinction in my degree), embedded Software Engineer, turned entrepreneur. I am IT. Not I-T like information technologies (although I'm I-T, too). Added the bit about having a degree since people who habitually downvote answers seem to all have them, too. I hope that doesn't rub off onto me...

No, IT, like "ha ha you're it"

Running a business has turned me into a modern day DaVinci through necessity. CAD? Yup. Linux sysadmin? Uh-huh. Machinist, Electrician, Php, mysql, postgres, graphics design PS AI ID, non-consensual visual basic, and back to some great embedded C/C++.

comment Gmail search filter “from: contacts” possible?
FWIW, this search works in the searchbox for searching mail but not in the from: field for filtering rules. Am trying this now, ending up just manually adding people I want to whitelist.

comment Is there a webapp to create ASCII art tables?
yes... between this and another answer, I wanted to show my workflow, since either by themselves didn't help my situation and would have required transcribing the whole table. Together, I didn't need to type all that info in by hand.

@KevinVermeer newer answers list a few ascii table generators.

comment Is there a tool for creating animation with html?
I've found jQuery (a javascript "library") quite useful for moving, fading, and coloring blocks of HTML (divs or spans).
