HELP! I keep sinking!

-- what do you mean?

When I jump from the boat, I sink!

-- do you know how to float?

Of course I know how to float! I wouldn't jump out of the boat if I couldn't float!

-- show me how you jump from the boat.

Here's a picture.

-- why are you holding the boat anchor?

I need that to help me float!

-- no you don't, it makes you sink.

No it doesn't, it's part of the boat and boats float so I need it.

-- let go of the anchor....

Somebody else! HELP! I keep sinking!

Don't geddit.
Typical response from the new guys.

Here's a picture.


That should have been the end of it.

Many come asking for advice and ignore or refuse to believe that someone else may know better than their mates or what they have read in instructibles.

The picture step is where the OP finally posts the actual code/schematic whether on page 1 or page >= 5.

We usually don't quit then while there's still hope.

The next steps are where helpers try to break the death-grip on the actual problem and the all-too-often result.

What can I say, just venting some frustration here. Bartender, a double Dimple please!

Next time I'll try a metaphor that subtracts LOW from HIGH.

"Dimple" ??

can't say as i have heard that term, except for the indentations in a persons cheeks when they smile.

(does it show i don't get out much?)

US brand name is Pinch, it's Blended Scotch. Look either or both up.

UK has a brand of scotch in a glass dimpled bottle , do not know what it is called though.

ChrisTenone

Scotch whiskey is pretty harsh to our delicate American palates, and the dimpled bottles are kinda large for our #tinyhands. I prefer Kentucky bourbon, particularly Austin Nichols' Wild Turkey 101. After dealing with the clueless all day, it helps to soothe the nerves well, and encourages that all-important beauty sleep.

Recently, after an OP had eventually found a (predictable) solution I suggested that if he had described the project in the original post he might have got the answer immediately. The response was great

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

if the project had nothing to do with the question, what was the question for?

I can imagine going to a car dealership, buying a car, and the salesman hands you keys. you try them in the car, and they don't fit. you ask the salesman, and his response "the keys have nothing to do with the car"
