Re: just getting started
I gotta warn you, though. The knowledge you pick up here won't make it really easy. (Though it's not all that hard, either.) But by reading these threads you can be warned against making some of the mistakes that we made. That can save you time and money. That's good.
Unfortunately most of us find mistakes of our own to make.
The good news is that fixing these is usually not too bad and it helps make your build YOUR Build. And that's cool, too.
So have fun.
