    Hello ladies, gentlemen and n00bs, here is an all new thread for your viewing pleasure. Herein I'll be compiling links to threads that answer some really common questions, and in the process hopefully spark some intelligent conversation and build upon Fox Talk/Tech's knowledge base. This will be an ongoing effort, so please feel free to post suggestions for common questions or additional threads with which to answer already listed questions.

    For starters, this sticky gets overlooked VERY frequently, and it already answer a lot of tech questions that get asked on a daily basis:

    Fox Tech's Technical and How-To Thread
