Subject Re: [users@httpd] Anyone know how to configure XBitHack?
Date Wed, 08 Jan 2003 03:31:26 GMT
I guess I'll find my answers elsewhere as you people just don't seem to get
the concept that reading the manual just isn't the answer. Maybe you think
it's best thing since sliced bread, but I'm not going to debate this one way
or another. I simply don't get it. Whether my knowledge base is lacking, or
whether I'm an Apache God is irrelevant. I don't get this part of it. I
thought these groups were here for users to help each other, not berate them
for not understanding the manual, guess I was wrong.

As for my initial question, it was, and still is a valid question and I
stand by it. Maybe you people should find a site on learning how to respond
to questions. I'm outa here.......
