If one person seems a bit too busy to keep helping you, can you repost?

I'm at wit's end with my computer and the person who was graciously helping me seems to be a bit overrun with other stuff at the moment.  Are you allowed to repost, or how would that work?  I'm sure other people would like to know what's been done, and I wonder if I could just post a link of the old thread with the new one?

 

Thanks!

I don't see it that way ... You left your topic and now have replied 30 minutes ago.. Yes they are busy with other topics but they wiil see your reply and get back as soon as it is possible.
If you do not get a reply in 3 days , then you would post here.

Please post in this topic if you have not received help after three days

I actually posted on 11-22 with a question and never got a reply, so my post today was more of a last-ditch attempt.  I was just asking in case I didn't receive a reply to the latest post, either.  But thanks.

Yes your post  of Posted 22 November 2014 - 02:36 PM

So my schedule has really been packed and I probably won't have time to make the disk until next week.  But is there anyway I can avoid the "Installing updates" process whenever I start my comp after shutting it down?  It's pretty time consuming, and if there's a way to avoid it, I'd appreciate finding out.  Thanks for your time.

I understand I said I couldn't make the disk for a week, but immediately after I asked a question (in the interim) that wasn't answered.  I knew I wouldn't have all day to mess with trying to make a disk for a while, but would have liked to find out if there were any way to avoid the constant "Installing Updates" mess every time I shut my computer off, UNTIL I could do a disk and the fix.  I'm sorry if I wasn't clear on that.

You must understand that we're just volunteers helping others in our free time for free and we're not here 24/7.

I do understand that, and I'm sorry if it seems otherwise.  When that question went unanswered, I thought you might be too busy, because I realize not only are you not here 24/7, but you've also got other people you're trying to help.  Hence why I said, " the person who was graciously helping me seems to be a bit overrun with other stuff at the moment," especially after seeing someone had left you a message on your profile wall today asking for help, too.  I know you volunteer your time for free, and I've been grateful for it.  I posted in here just in case you weren't able to get back to me quickly -- which I would totally understand.  But I'm having a lot of issues with my computer now, and I use it to work.  Wasting hours trying to figure this out means losing out on work, so I'm sorry I'm in a panic to fix it.

 

At no point was I intending to offend you or anyone else, and if I have, I apologize.
