    Since we are always asking questions back and forth on how to fix this or that, build new, replace, repair, etc, etc.

    I thought I would share a great resource we just found.

    I used them for a while. However, the search function was disabled or severely cripples about a year ago, and I haven't been there much since. It used to be that you could search for whatever problem you might have, and find the solution had already been posted. However, it seems that the search function was taking up far too much of the database server's resources, so they disabled it.
