Earlier this week, I exposed the idea for my project. For five days in a row, I painstakingly wrote down every question that was either sent to me via IM, email, youtube, or blog. I will list the questions below by Day and category, and then I will have my conclusions afterwards. Enjoy!

11) Thank you for the reply. I tried some forums but they seem to be dead.
12) No I don’t have to use CloneCD as I never used it for any of the previous burns in first place since I had more .cue isos. All I used was Alcohol120%. And I did think about the laser being in its last days, but I had burned less than 10 (well, 7) successful back-ups in a row before I faced this problem. A 2008 hardware dying like this?
Also, I think I have checked it’s status correctly here : http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/1649/63025933.jpg
13) It can also play DVD movies just fine. Writing speed? The same as the one used for the successful burns, 48-52x. I remember very well you saying that PS2 ISO-s need to be burned at half the empty DVD-s max speed. These are all CD-s though.
What I don’t understand is why Alcohol tells me to check registry files, whereas ImgBurn (2nd pic) smth totally alien to me.
What my ignorant-on-PC stuff brain was thinking of is that the cause of the problem may be the fact that I installed too many programs like NeroEssentials and ImgBurn latest version ( which I have heard to be problematic http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=11206)
I think I will uninstall all of them and install Alcohol once more as the lone burning sowftware (although sooner or later I will need one for the PS2 ISO-s)
I apologize for the long post.
14) I have a problem. I joined the FIFA10 room and this guy and I tried to join a game together , we both tried hosting but it shows our local IP address not tunngle IP, how do we fix this?
Category: PS2 USB:
15) Also, I have read a help file I found kicking about that USB advance only supports 40gb+, anyone confirm they had this working on less that 40gb?
Category: Burning PS2 game using Nero
16) btw, the half max speed rule stands for PSX isos too or max is just fine? I heard that for some games it must be really low (less than 24x).
17) can you show how to do xbox 360 games?

63) Sorry for bothering you again and again. well i wanted to share what i experienced.
(1) I prepared SM DVD and USB Advance CD-R as advised. i inserted SM DVD in my PS2 and it asked me to Insert a PS or PS2 format Disk.
(2) Then i ran PCSX2 0.96 on my laptop and inserted the same SM DVD and it worked. i again put it in PS2 and no message appeared this time and only Memory card icon was shown on the screen.
(3) i changed the BIOS of PCSX2 from USA to Japan and then loaded it, the same PS2 format disk message appeared. after that even USA bios was not able to run SM again. Now i am not sure what went wrong. Either i need a japan bios compatible SM? (as my PS2 version is 1.11 J) or else.
Please advise and help

75) ok cool i blocked the 2 sensors,but can i use dvd-r to burn my games?
76) Hey man, is there a way to make everything on Tunngle english? I can’t read or speak German and many of the menus are exclusively in German, so I’m obviously having trouble doing even the simplest of things. I’ve looked on the help forums, but almost everything there is also in German. Its getting me nowhere, and my username and password aren’t even working on the forum so I can’t ask my question there. Any help is appreciated.
77) so … i didnt manage to find your other video about how to update to the newest version of killing floor . could you telme how to….update??
78) how did you do youtube facebook status?
79) does 1008 work in killing floor?
80) what is latest version of kf, 1007 or 1008?
The conclusion is that I answer a lot of frickin’ questions! Now you understand partly why I can be busy at times. I answer on average 80-100 questions a week easily!
What is more interesting is that a lot of the questions revovle around PS2, tunngle, or how to use Garena! OMG, the garena questions! I sometimes wonder if tapping into that Garena community with killing floor and L4D was a mistake or not. :-0
Nonetheless, about 95% of the questions received have horrible grammar or misspelled words. Seriously, how ghetto do you want to be? Is it possible that those who type like that are kids or foreigners who don’t know English that well?
Actually, there were maybe 5-10 more questions late on Friday night that I didn’t bother adding to this list because I was getting too tired, but at least now I know for real on average how busy I am!
I hope this experiment opened your eyes. This stresses the importance of not being a tool, and learning how to use the Internet. Some day I will get burned out and I will say “Screw it. You use google. I am not your relative google anymore!”.
There I said it. Learn to be self-sufficient, and everyone is happy. I am happy because I don’t have to be online to help your poor soul. You are happy because you don’t have to depend on me to help you get where you need to go. Isn’t that a win-win situation? Yes it is, so do it please!!!!

Seriously, there are a lot more tools than I realized. *face palm*
LOL Question 41………………………….
Did you actually count all of them?
Yes, it was a pain. It was a good exercise, as now I know on average how many questions I answer a week.
Define being being a tool in your eyes.
And yes i used google and it only showed hardware stuff.
A tool is someone who wants to be spoonfed and given information. Their research skills are very poor, and they are unwilling to go the extra step to learn or do research because they don’t have time to do it when they can just ask someone else how to do it.
basically a good example; fat guy unwanting to do excersize
I hope this experiment opened your eyes. This stresses the importance of not being a tool, and learning how to use the Internet. Some day I will get burned out and I will say “Screw it. You use google. I am not your relative Google anymore!”.
Well we are using the Internet and you happen to be part of it ………………Hello .Your no gods gift to technology .So come down off your high horse my god!!!!

You all created to blog ,Deal with it….
Dont ban for the comment either !!!!! just how i felt
It is what it is and I accept it for what it is. It was just a thought I wanted to rant about, no more and no less. It was fun, and now its time to move onto the next hit item. 🙂
I really wasnt speaking of the experiment .just your overall attitude ,when it comes to questions theses days……………… no offense but if you were close to me at the time ,i would of handed you a rag ………………….to hold on your bloody lip ………….so i guess now we venture forward…………….enough of my rant on tudes , feel me ? im done……… 🙂
