The internet is kind of like a big Club, where you can go and find other people who are interested in the same sort of things that you are. Chances are someone's done what you are trying to do, or something similar, and wrote about it.
Or you can post a question on a forum, and (in among the wise cracks) someone will have the gem of knowledge that you need.
Only, you don't need to go there every Wednesday night at 7:45 pm. You can wander in when you like.
Recently Vic cam acros my little page, left a comment, and a link to his page. He's a little more ambitious that me, and his pages make great reading, so have a wander over here and leave a comment to say hi.
Comments are always appreciated on blogs. Means we're not talking to ourselves.
