I thought nsxprime is different than other forums but I was wrong. Sorry for asking stupid question.
Not a stupid question. Being a newbie myself, I am sure I have asked questions that some of the more knowledgeable members may have thought was a waste of text space but regardless, I always did got an accurate answer. It shouldn't matter how elementary a questions appears to be, it is always better to ask and be prepared for the negative comments instead of not asking and having to worry about costly repairs as a result.
Try not to take some of the comments personal, the point of this community is to help each other and although some of the comments may not have been what you expected, you did get a good answer which is really the most important thing.
I learn something new each week thanks to this forum, so don't be discourage or hesitate to ask for help when needed because the members are extremely helpful.
