This thread will become the dumping ground for thread hijacks. A "hijack" is when you post an off-topic post into a specific topic thread. I do not interpret joking, or ribbing, or kudos as hijack, but when someone posts about, say, installing market, and you ask about getting your device connected, you just hijacked. There are waaaaay too many posts and threads for you to be completely unable to find a thread to necro (post to an old thread to bring it back up) to find your answer. Make no mistake, this thread is not a place you want your post to be. It makes it less likely you will get an answer, and it is a badge of shame. Do yourself a favor and either look around, or start a new thread.

...to find a thread to necro (post to an old thread to bring it back up) to find your answer.

I thought it was called "bump"...? Necro, really? So morbid.-Matt

Little did I know the wall of shame would be the hot spot to jabber. We need a tard cart board on here... Hey mike, can we start a tard cart board?Can I get away with posting like I'm a newbie or do my 1,100+ ( <:-o ) posts give me away too much?

[quote name='gadgetrants;44929]I thought it was called "bump"...? Necro' date=' really? So morbid.[/QUOTE']"Bump" is when the thread is unresolved but cooled (no one answers your question). "Necro" is when the thread is resolved (poster got an answer), but you have a similar problem and need to build on the answer or get more answers.

If a necro keeps coming back, do we call it a zombie ... re-neck is just too close to redneck. How about vampire for a question that you've answered 17 times and doing it again just sucks the blood right out of your head?Speak of the devil, er ... whatever undead thing just brought back the month old thread on rooting the PDN.

The assumption we are all making is that Pandigital actually give a rats *arse and that if we bug them enough they will do the right thing and release the source. I've said it before and I'll say it again. I think they are a bunch of tossers who don't give a crap about us and they'll continue to fob us off until we just give up and move on. Love to be proven wrong.............
