Re: TI-H: the ti-hardware list.

Since questions involving hardware related to the TI-calcs are few and far
between, why not?  I didn't hear you complaining about the AVR vs. PIC
microcontroller discussions, either; those weren't strictly on topic, were
they?  This isn't exactly a high-volume list - what's the problem if some
techies want to talk some unrelated geek shit?  You can learn a lot more by
listening to a broader range of ideas than just what's supposed to be
on-topic for this list, and anyone who has a question about almost anything
technical can ask here and find _someone_ who's interested in the topic or
with at least passing knowledge of the subject.  If you can't stomach
high-level programming (or any other off-topic post), fine- just don't rip
into those of us who can help.  Toss a filter in your mail rules if you
simply can't bear it.

On the other hand, what irritates me is when people post unresearched (see:
stupid) questions because they're too lazy to look up the answer.
