Of course this is a pricy way to do things, but it happened to be conveinit.
    So what you're saying is, 'Do it this way, even though I did and then regretted it'?

    I've learned a lot of this stuff by finding a friend who knows it, then offering to be his or her gopher for a project so that I can watch, ask, and do and learn for myself. There's plenty you'll miss if you try and just 'dissect' what someone else did. Look at anthropologists, they dig up skeletons and try to make theories on how the skeletons lived before they misplaced their living flesh. Don't you think that, if they had the option, they'd just speak with the living person and ask them the questions directly?

    the part i regreted was having the stupid people at circuit city set it up, if you have a friend who could set it up for free, go that way. Then disect it.

    I'm with TruckinMp3 on this one, doing the dissection means you miss out on a lot of context, like WHY they did certain things.
