#169055 - If it's overwhelming, you need to find another pursuit.
Responding to: Chris Bertrand's previous message
Chris Bertrand said:
Sometimes reading a 500+ page datasheet is overwhelming. IMO, sometimes people just need that little nudge of.......hey check here, and for the "most" part, that is enough for them get the job done.......if its something that happens every week......then yeah.....I can see where people get frustrated.

So ... if your job requires you to read and understand the datasheet, you figure you shouldn't do that, right? You figure that someone who has done the work should simply tell you where the detail you're after is to be found, so you can read that paragraph out of context rather than understanding what the MCU you're apparently using actually does?

If you worked for me, you'd be unemployed as soon as I learned you'd done that, though people of your sort seldom are invited to work here.

Still, I'm still at the same job, doing the same thing, and it all came from the PEOPLE HERE ON 8052 WHO TOOK THE TIME TO HELP ME, not telling me I should have googled it.

Clearly your managers don't know what you're not doing.

Yet the high and mighties can't seem to grasp the concept that a few bad apples ruin it for people who really need/appreciate it.......like myself.

Instead, you get lumped into, your a waste of space BS. I just makes me crazy and leads to thoughts processes like this:

You get lumped in because you don't want to do your work ... and you write with erroneous syntax, too! Who did your homework in 5th grade, where you should have learned about contractions and possessives.




But hey, just got keep a level head and hope that these people get bit in the ass by let Karma do its thing.

What??? Where'd you learn to read and write? Have you learned yet? Maybe that's why the datasheet overwhelms you! Maybe you should have done your own work in 5th grade!

As I've said before, most of people here, tend to be more helpful than hurtful.

Most folks here are willing to do their own work. A few, apparently including you, figure it's help when someone does your reading and thinking for you. Sooner or later you'll learn that it's not.
