LOL... I know... I just thought maybe I would throw the questions they asked me out there and see what I got back.. Thanks

Webopedia, Answers.com, and Wikipedia are some of the best websites I know of where you can get great answers to a very wide range of questions. That's why I gave you links to those.

Please don't hesitate to re-post any questions that you cannot find answers to with those sites, or even Google's advanced search.
