I never explicitly tell people to search or do research without giving them direction or links to places to start looking (while also suggesting methods or answers at the same time). There is nothing wrong with promoting the idea of searching the forums, which are packed with information, before posting a duplicate thread. I do not ignore duplicates and am not mean or condescending to members. Maybe you have confused my intentions... but a lot of work goes into the forum and I personally feel that the things I do for the community are helpful and welcoming.
But I am glad to hear your opinion and maybe I will take it into consideration. As for the "critical comments"... constructive criticism is good at the right place and time I am sure you can talk you countless members on the forum and they will tell you I am a friendly and helpful person!
Have a nice one
*EDIT* : and I did not mean to accuse you of hijacking your own thread, that was my mistake... but placing your questions in a thread related to your question will yield better results and better forum organization (in case someone else would have the same question, they would be able to find answers in a related thread)

HDD Question - 09-17-2009, 07:37 PM
Interesting comments in the thread
Not to be "off the thread subject", but I was looking at your mini 10v settings, "bmcclure937" and was interested in how the 320g hd was working as far as your battery life is concern. I still have the original 160g & would like a larger hd...but didn't want my battery to suffer greatly, thanks

esparzatj, disk size rarely affects power usage. In the future, you could send a Private Message if you wanted to ask a question of a member or start a new thread. Please try not to tack on unrelated questions to an existing thread - thanks.

The thread evolved; I thought it was kind of Holmes4 to make some suggestions - and I was doing my own research into the problem. I didn't expect quite so robust a reprimand.
Anyway to get back on track. The advice was really useful - I turned my desktop CD drive into a shared drive; mapped it onto the mini as a network drive and installed my software with no problems. Of course I did then need the internet to download updates ... (and the answer to that one turned out to be that if you have the wireless N card you need to reset the router to channel 11).
