only rejoined to ask a few questions i have had no luck with here so if i get a decent sensible answer i will update

LOL, I've had a submarine account there for months and I post occasionally. They're completely in the dark and have no idea who I am.

The admin here or there? the admin here seems to be distinctly absent!
Yes, the admin here is absent. Ken has not delegated that authority to any users here yet.

The admin/owner of the other site is (as he has the right to be) a mad dictator. He knows his stuff, but god forbid you say something he disagrees with.

He has ZERO tolerance for any discussion of
  • Running BI in a VM
  • Anyone who prefers Linux
  • Using anything other than a business class Dell/HP with an Intel processor
  • Certain camera vendors
  • etc
  • I could probably go on forever
  • Liberals :-)

Go post your system design and ask for opinions. When you are told it is terrible, try to convince them of your reasons.

And make sure to add in that you really wish BI made a Linux version because Linux is more stable and secure than Windows.

The other site was started a long time ago. It's a good site with lots of good information. Tread lightly. If you ruffle feathers, the admin has a way of bringing the hammer down on anyone he disagrees with, or, has an opinion other than his.
