catching up on the archives takes some doing, and sometimes, us newbies
gotta have the answers. (lookit this way -- what much difference does it
make for a regular or old-timer to post the usual reply or to point the
newbie to the right spot in the archives? either ways, it takes just one
email/response. either that, or most don't bother to respond.)

eddie, you're an old fart! (j/k)
gee, i was *born* in the late 70's...('77 to be exact).
as to the newbies-with-recurring-questions...well, all i have to say is that
it really depends on the particular culture of the mailing list or online
forum. while i'm a newbie here, there are other forums i'm an "old timer"
of. and there, we welcome newbies (questions, silly or not, and all)
without any issues. dead horses are gladly resurrected to be gladly beaten
again (to stetch the analogy...)
and i was about to ask what the opinion (not information) is on g-gundam
(the series, not the mechs :P). it's kicking off next week in the
philippines, taking over for g-wing.
