#100687 - no, it is not
Responding to: Jan Waclawek's previous message
He just somehow does not accept the advice given.
Maybe that's what Erik means by "rookie"?


Let me split this in two
a rookie is someone that set out for the first (or 2nd or 3rd) time to do something with the '51.

there are several types of rookies
1) I can not get "blinky" to work
2) I am fluent in C and I can not be bothered with the hardware details of the processor.
3) I have never worked with the '51 and just accepted a job to build an ABS (automatic braking system) with it.
You make your own decision re what is reasonable above and what is not.

To the other issue "He just somehow does not accept the advice given" I think my statement "Now, with a weekend coming up, make an effort do not "whip up some code" and if what you show on tuesday have even a chance of being fixed" describes it quite well. This in combination with the fact that NONE of the suggestions ever were implemented. Now we see "What the fuck am I missing?" If such language is what the person decides to use I acn reply "a decent way of expressing yourself"

I can understand frustration, but there has to be limits. I have been in situations where I have hunted a bug for days and I can guarantee you that in that level of frustration I have tried each and every suggestion, not just said "fix it for me"
