I know the material in the thing, but am a completionist and will use lower level stuff I shoudl be able to go through quickly to judge what other may be like.
The good news is that this has worked. It has allowed you to judge.
On the plus side the bugs pushed me to a better product
And I post here because I know others will hit these walls and search and it’s good for them to know their not alone in their frustrations.
That is totally valid and it is quite useful to get broader feedback. My point was more that the ticket is needed if you want anything to change. If you don’t, then that’s fine.
If I just send a ticket maybe my instance gets fixed but no one else knows this could be a shared struggle.
Very true. It depends on how the problem arose and how it got fixed. As I said, I never meant to imply it was “only raise a ticket”, it is just that without a ticket it’s just talking on a forum. That isn’t a bad thing, it just doesn’t change anything.
With the amount of spoilers on reddit and other sites I wonder how much “completion” of these is legit and how much is googled answers?
I am not sure there is a difference in practice. I can learn how SSH works and memorise every switch, or I can use the man pages when I need it, or I can google for examples. I am not convinced any one approach is correct, and it largely depends on how often you do something if it is worth memorising it. I mount filesystems in Linux on a regular basis but I can’t for the life of me remember the correct syntax for each filesystem. I don’t think I am ever going to bother learning it, and I am happy that I have aliases set up on the systems I use most often and can google it if I need to.
