A bit different perspective --

This list is NOT the first place to go to with a question. Searching
will often give the answer, but not always, especially for newbies.
Some search results may be old and out of date, and not work. Others
may be for a slightly different problem, and not work. Still others
may be above your technical abilities, and you may not know how to do
what they suggest, and thus not work.

After you have tried searching and trying on your own, and not having
success, then consider the list. Describe your system, explain what
you want to do, what you have done and how it failed, and ask for
advice. You will likely get help here.

This is my brief overview of what the list is for, and often does well
