It's okay, Arco. I'm a big boy, I can handle myself. No need to snarl at Shoujo. She has the right to get a tad impatient with me. She's been dealing with my resistance to the wonders of this new web thing for nigh unto eleven years. And we've known each other as personal friends since 2009. We can cut each other some slack. My daughter (who's the same age as Shoujo) is more than a tad impatient with me on technical matters. (I hear a lot of "Jesus, Dad!")
But you have a point about me wanting to get info from people who actually know these things, rather than, say, Wikipedia. In the old days, I used to get a lot of "Google is your friend" on movie and anime forums, which was annoying because I wanted to hear from people who actually saw the movies and anime I was asking about and could share first-hand info.
As for H!P, yeah, I am getting used to looking things up on these sites more and more, rather than asking questions here, and more often than not, I find what I need. It's just that Generasia is the most user-friendly site for me and there are gaps in its database. H!P Wiki has problems loading on my computer and it sometimes crashes on me before I can get all the info I want. And it's harder to copy and paste from that site or print things out. Too many ads and pop-up things. Sometimes it just won't print or I can't copy and paste into a word file. Don't know why that is. (I have a similar problem on this site--unable to paste things.) And I do like the fact that a lot of users here are willing to share their knowledge so freely. And if I'm doing a blog entry and find it difficult to find the info I'm looking for, I find it convenient to ask here to see if anyone knows and maybe get an answer before I'm finished.
But let's all be nice to each other. Facebook is sucking a lot of the energy away from forums like this and we need to keep up the unique community spirit we have here.
