You're quite wrong. It is not you I have a problem with. How could it be, as I do not know you?
I do have a problem with many of your responses here. For the reasons I have often attempted to explain in detail.
Those explanations can be summarised as:
You have a tendency to offer 'potted wisdoms' rather than actual solutions.
This might be useful if those wisdoms were always, or even usually correct, but they aren't. Moreover, if they were sufficiently incorrect as to being obviously so, then I would ignore them and allow nature to take its course. But the danger is that they are often sufficiently grounded and plausible, as to make them casually indiscernible from ideas worth pursuing. Which makes them very capable of causing people to waste a lot of time doing so.
What's worse, even when your "ol'timer logic" has been comprehensively demonstrated to be flawed, again & again, you keep on trotting out your "virtual memory is disk" dogma. And you're still doing it.
Conversely, I've never seen you offer any Perl code as a solution. Nary a once. Maybe I just missed it?
To reiterate, it isn't you, but your posts I have a problem with.
