I'm glad to be on board with this site. First thing I noticed is that there are a large number of terms with which I am not familiar. I guess I'll pick it up as I go.

I'm very interested in this hobby, but have no experience. I ought to pick up stuff from all of you!
Under the handbook tab above there is appendix A which will give you many, probabbly noit all, of the meanings to the terms you are looking for in a glossary.
We all started with exactly no experience too - it is what we all have in common:-)
you can always use the Search tool at the top right corner of the page. Lots and lots of information is available that way.
