Well, being a guy with a short fuse, I don't like dumb questions--so I naturally can't stand most questions in this forum. I hereby formally introduce you to what is commonly known as "Google". Google is a company that created a search engine that is well known and famous for its fast, easy service.

You can reach google at www.google.com and then you can go about exploring the internet.

Let us say that you have a question regarding the quality of ATI graphics chips vs. nVidia chips. Well, you can go to www.google.com and just enter into the search field the things you want information about.

This was the first result. See--it compares both ATI and nVidia. (http://tech-report.com/reviews/2002q2/ati-nvidia/index.x?pg=1)

Now, let's say you don't have a computer problem--well then google is for you, because it isn't only limited to computer problems.

This is the first site that hit when I searched for 'John Kerry'. (http://www.johnkerry.com/index.html)

This is the first site that hit when I searched for 'Monkey Explosion'. (http://thedropzone.org/pacific/Herzig2.html)

As you can see, the versitility of Google knows no bounds, so you should start to become familiar with Google and its uses. Thank you, this is White_Hindu signing out.

It is true that there are a lot of questions asked here that can be answered by using a simple google search, but we must learn patience White_Hindu. Even though they seem like dumb or easy questions to you and me, the person asking the question may be clueless. It isn't their fault, therefore we will still welcome all "dumb" question while I'm a mod of this forum. Granted the thread might get locked after a simple, "Please use google" response, but I want all users to know that they should feel free to ask any computer related question in here if they need help.

That's why we are here....to help people. ;)
