10.6: The return of unlimited PRAM zapping
Authored by: robogobo on Oct 23, '09 03:33:03AM

not to open an old wound (and not that it should have to come to that, no thanks to the snobs here) but just to shed a bit of light on the discrepancy... After discussing with an old Mac guru of mine, we concluded that the apparent PRAM zapping limit I experienced was caused by the fact that all three Macs, two of mine and one of a friend, had bluetooth keyboards attached, and after the second zap, they became unrecognized until the startup completed. I have no way of testing this now, but it's the only explanation that makes sense, because I'm 100% certain I'm not imagining the stuff.

And whether or not this is correct, wouldn't it be great if the übergeeks around here would dig in a little on stuff like this to examine some possibilities instead of knocking people for posting "non-hints"? I wasn't totally on the mark with my first conclusion, but damn, some of you guys are not so cool.

Typical how you're writing "wasn't totally on the mark" when in fact your "zapping PRAM was limited to two restarts" was plain wrong. Why is it that hard for you to admit you were wrong?

And typical how you're saying "not to open an old wound" and then use phrases like "no thanks to the snobs here" and "some of you guys are not so cool".

I'd say: find a mirror, and look in it. Do you see someone cool?

Good thing: this hint is no longer relevant, so let's hope robg just trashes it, including all comments.

Well, if that's what it all comes down to for you, who's right and who's wrong, I was wrong. Totally wrong, dead wrong. I'm so gosh darn sorry. Whatever I can do to make it up to you, oh wise and mighty one, please tell me and I'll prostrate myself before your greatness and beg for forgiveness. I mean, how dare I submit an observation here, without being TOTALLY RIGHT!

Man, you're just stepping forward when I call out snob, aren't you.

If I didn't have such a long experience with good people here who were willing to troubleshoot and get down to the nitty gritty and have some fun, I'd be taking my thoughts elsewhere. Fortunately the good still outnumber the bad, though you wouldn't know it just from this thread.

Did you have any chance to look into that mirror yet?

(I am not the one who's calling people names here.)

Yes, I looked into the mirror, and I am so uncool. I'm consulting my self help books now to see how I can avoid all this projection in the future. Thank you so much for helping me see the light. I mean, it feels great to admit how wrong I am on a tech site. Nevermind the discussions, I was WRONG!
