I'm looking for old mods, anyone still have their collection from around 1993? You remember '93 right? 386's, sx vs. dx, 486dx2's etc....
Anyway, I'm looking for a piano piece by the name of Mrs Fletcher (I'm pretty sure that's what it was called).
Anyone have it?

Cheers, Mac

Yea, I tried Google.
BTW: If anyone saw my earlier post about hearing versus actually *listening*, Jew's reply is a prime example.
I asked if anyone had a certain mod in their own collection (go ahead, read that part again), and the only valid reponse I get is to go search for it. Don't ya think I already did that?

The name is JewisHeritage not "Jew's".... & EXCUSE ME.... HECKLER

Try "Listening" to your own arrogance!

As Quoted/POSTED In His Other Thread.....Sometimes I wonder why people ask questions if they're not willing to try suggestions.

Sorry, don't feel like typing out your whole nick....so if ya don't like it, maybe ya should pick a different one. So if your nick was Bobmeisterborgenstein, would you get offended that I called ya Bob? Gimme a break, you picked the name. And, mine's spelled with a J. :)
Anyway... to get back to the center....
What's the first line of my reply? "Yea, I tried Google"
Face it, you weren't paying attention. You 'heard' that I wanted mod files. You didn't 'listen' to the question that I wanted to know if someone had a specific one in their collection. You fell into it, and now you're trying to crawl your way out because you were called on it. Getting upset because I didn't feel like spelling out your whole name is just childish. Geez, IRL people call me Jeck all the time. I've had it for 15 years. Calm down.

Let me quote myself:
"Just thought I'd vent, and ask everyone to think before replying. I know everyone can read, but try to also understand. I use it on my work partner all the time, he's real bad. He'll hear what someone is saying, but he doesn't *listen*, if ya know what I mean."

You fell into the same thing. You didn't understand what I was looking for. You heard me ask about mod files. You didn't listen to me say "Anyway, I'm looking for a piano piece by the name of Mrs Fletcher (I'm pretty sure that's what it was called).
Anyone have it?"

It'd be one thing if I had asked where to find mods. Your reply would have been perfect, and I would have appreciated it. Instead, you took the easy way out and told me to go to google and use the search string of "mod files". *Palm slap on forehead*, dang, why didn't I think of that?.... oh wait, I did!
I was hoping someone would have, in their private collection, this 1 particular song I am looking for. Most people don't put the contents of their HD out on the web for search engine bots to catalog, and it's even harder for a bot to catalog someone's floppy collection sitting in a desk drawer, don't ya think?
So, since you don't have it, I'll be on to more productive things.
BTW: If you ever need a mod file, check out http://wuarchive.wustl.edu/~aminet/dirs/tree_mods.html or http://www.tcp-ip.or.jp/~ebiten/mod/mod-files-links.html

The statement you made using JewishHeritages name truncated
is derogatory, racist, and by no way can be excused as an normal shortening of ones internet name. I personally find this totally offensive, and down right nasty. At this point if you wish help from me in the future, even if I could I would not!!!!!!!!!!!!
For what it is worth if that is the way you want to treat someone who offers help maybe you should find another Forum!

JERKLER, nobody knows your level of expertise/ignorance so when anybody responds to your questions, no matter what the responce is i.e Molder(ya i saw your avatar on THAT post) you should appreciate the fact that another "member" took the time to try and help you- from my understanding thats why "we're" here. and yes your comments are prejudied, inflammatory, and derogatory "in MY opinion"

davey7549 & jimi: Thank You for bringing the obvious to view! I wasn't going to "go there" for a variety of reasons.

It is a bit "forward" to request I change my name....He has not a clue as to why I selected this name....He has not a clue as to the definition of the word Heckler.....

He "hears" that what he wishes to hear....

I best stop here...."A Certain Someone" may construe this reply as being "obnoxious"....

Thanx Again davey7549 & jimi! ;)

Uh, ok...Dave.

Shortening JewisHeritage's name to Jew is no worse than shortening YoMamadontliveherenomore's name to Yo. If I had said "The Jew", or "That Jew", or even "A Jew", heck yea that'd be derogatory!
I really don't know how else to explain it, but the way I said it was in no way meant to be taken that way. I do remember as I was writing it that this might happen, but at least I didn't try to generalize him with 'The', 'A', or 'That' (the worst one IMO). I said what I said, and I'm sorry it was taken the wrong way.

Jimi:
I have no idea who the Molder guy is, but I did notice his account was disabled very quickly.
I would appreciate it though that if you're going to accuse someone of being deragotory, you don't make the same mistake, (Jerckler?).
My whole point of it was to point out that people need to listen to what someone is asking for. Don't just reply to get your post count up.

Would you guys just knock it off? Do you feel like you are actually accomplishing anything? It really bothers me when people in this forum start going at it. How does that look to new members and others? If you would like to discuss your issues with each other, I'd suggest you do it with Private Messages or email.

Anyway...
Although I do not have it in my 'personal collection', I think I may have found it for you here - first link. Might take a while for the page to come up. If it doesn't come up, I just did a search for it at The Mod Archive

You are correct, sorry the "think before you speak" part of my brain took a break, i try to do that. Mr. Molder you might look for a guy pushin a rental property. Post count??? i've been here a while and look how low my posts are sorry if its a status thing i could care less if i'm junior, senior, disfigured er distinguished or modulator!!!!!

If something crosses my mind on how it might be "inoffensive"....I would reword it.....oh....& thanx for not trying to generalize me as anything....it says much about how you truly think & your true beliefs.... "IMO"

Alright, I'm going to close this before it gets out of hand.

Here's what should have happened:

JewishHeritage informs Jeckler, in a calm and informing tone, that he/she was offended by the abbreviation.

Jeckler returns, apologizing for the offensive abbreviation and uses a non offensive alternative (like "JH")...

And all is well in the world. :) I think if everyone were to calm down a bit and try not to be so sensitive about other's mistakes, and a little more senstive to their own, things would be much better here... and more easy going.
