He if were an expert, he would not need anyone's help.Bottomline, there are plenty of posts to read.
If you don't like this, skip it as let those who are interested read it without watching someone talk down to someone else.
Thanks for making that bolded point. Search, read, repeat. Even if you don't know what questions to ask, chances are they have already been answered. If they haven't, by all means post them. But by then they are going to be well-informed, specific, answerable questions. The great thing about the internet is that it can eliminate the inefficiency of traditional human interaction (eg. the guy at home depot who spends all day answering the same question over and over). So search is awesome, thick skin is awesome, and learning things is awesome (including learning new ways to function as a person/netizen aka don't be set in your ways).
As this thread demonstrates, when there is no focus to the topic you get misinformation and extraneous posts which doesn't help anyone.
So hopefully this thread gets back on track by the OP posting what he decides to do and why, and any mistakes he makes so that other people can avoid them in the future and posts in such a way as to make it easily searchable for others.
