Re: RE: Splitting the list

I agree with you here to some extent :).   I am not the best coder in the
world, nor do I consider myself that good at it, but I'm here just pretty
much reading what other people have to say about mudding, etc.  I do
though take the time to try to figure out the problems myself before
bothering other people with them.  I feel the need to do this because I
think the only way you can truly learn is to experiment with things
yourself.  I think the major problem is most of the "newbies" don't want
to spend the time it takes to code if you don't get code from somebody
else.  It does take a lot of time, and I'll admit, there are times where
I'll spend hours on something simple before I can actually get the thing
working right, but I feel it necessary to try myself first so I become a
better coder, and can do more things in the future.

Just my two cents..
