Hi Mike - where you been?
And if you look at India now, they are the ones rubbing sticks together and living in squalour.Asians where using mathematics and studying astronomy, when Europeans were still rubbing two sticks together to make fire.
Thinking back to the "engineers" I met on my visits there a few years ago, I cannot imagine how they managed that.They currently have a space craft on the way to Mars.!
that is a skill few employ. I've seen it many times over the last 20 years of forums and NNTP.If it or someone bothers you, just ignore!
hi Jim,Xenophobic? Not until I went there!
I came back with a very bad impression of the place and many of the people.
I have to say that, because of RK, I did not even open posts from first time posters with indian name/location for a long time. Now I do read many posts, but rarely respond. I'm fed up with people who do not have any interest in what they are doing.Are you now saying we should not help or tolerate any Asian guy/gal who appears to be a little slow in learning, using RK as bench mark for all Asians.?
Been talking to my daughter recently - as she has a fair number of Chinese friends over here doing their Masters.I have had a lot of experience with Asian (meaning mostly mainland China) students, both as fellow students and as trainees in my department.
Thank you for that recognition, I guess some of that comes from my day job where I explain a technical subject to people of all backgrounds and technical abilities.hi Jim,
Even though you have a bad impression of the place, having read your posts for many years, you have been tolerant and wise enough not to 'slag' off these guys in your posts, but give technical help when possible and ignore as required.
Asia is a big place with many diverse groups, religions, nationalities and ethnicities.Asians
The ebb and flow of the forum tides during a 24 hour period will always exist.Apparently ETO is busier than AAC before 18H00...
The cumulative total on a periodic basis is probably the best indicator. ETO had choose to discriminate between real people and robots. That is one of their metrics they decided was important.100339Z Sep 14
