Re: Index

Aren't you tired of typing the same stuff all over again?
Have you ever wondered what are the gems hidden in this forum?
Ever wished you had a thread you could rediret a newb with all his noobish questions to?

One Thread to Rule them all! This is it.
I had this idea for quite a while now, and now I want to implement it.
Something like Nikokapos "review thread", but more general.

I will try to create and maintain an all englobing INDEX of links inside the LPF.
Of course I need your help.
I know many of you already have a bunch of good links in your signature, let's put them
all together into one place.

You can use this thread to propose and discuss links to be added.
Do you feel your awesome thread has been left out?
You can even make structural suggestions, sections of the index.

Once (if) this hits a critical mass, I will try to get it stickied.

Bumping, asking for contributions, what are those threads full of awesome I have missed.
Come on you vets, dig out your favourite links.

Any changes to the structure? Missing a section?
Help a brother here....

If you have a questions use the search function. You will find what you are asking. Dont just post it in someone elses unrelated thread.

Actually helios, there's an even shorter answer to that particular question.

RTFM..

The manual for the flexdrives explains how to set them.
