When I started using the web a few years ago, many people were kind enough
to take the time to help me, and never made me feel dumb about even the most
basic question. I was also constantly astonished at the web resources made
available by thousands of people who had obviously worked very hard to make
detailed explanations available the web.
Now that I can answer a few questions, I try to remember where I came from.
The fact is that many people don't have a clue where to begin getting
answers-that's why they join lists like this.
I belong to several lists that won't accept one-line (usually a URL)
answers, and others that insist that answers include as many details as
applicable (such as where to find the program or information referred to in
an answer).
So-it ain't "dirty work". It's just a complete answer that will hopefully
help the newbie out of his dilemma.
well garsh ron, I mean like how many resources on the web are there
