If you are looking for an answer to a linux question, then #nvidia is the way to go.

you came on yesterday asking questions that neither myself nor MUYA knew about... hence muya directed you to a channel he felt knew more on the topic than us...

there was no harm intended but @ the time there was no one in the #nvnews channel who could have helped you... #nvidia was the way to go...

As Sazar said, I myself know nothing about Linux and nobody in the channel (at the time you came in), knew linux. Well Dibbler knows little but he was away working. Volt wasn't there either. That is why I suggested to you to them other channels, of which #nvidia on that network is also a linux help channel.

Now i know on #nvidia they can a bit l33tist. But #nvnews????
Just because we couldn't help doesn't mean we were stuffy and unhelpfull, just we didn't know. I mean we gave you other channel names? If we could not help because we don't know anythin, that is what it exactly means, we could not help.
We might also be browsing at the same time, writing/reading emails, chatting in other irc networks so thats why it may seem to you that we were supposedly "stuffy". Please do not judge us by one visit.

As for others, they are mostly window users and 99.9% of the time, they stay idle.

Regards
MUYA
