I am an absolute beginner when it comes to handy stuff, having never really had much exposure to that kind of thing growing up, or anybody around to pick things up off since I became an adult.
I'm completely overwhelmed with what I've found from internet searches as I don't really know where to start. I notice that the questions/answers on the site are a bit above where I'd be in terms of skill, so I just wanted to check whether it was OK for someone like me to ask questions below that level.
I would honestly be asking complete potato-head questions to start with, like "how do I cut a plywood sheet into two even pieces" (really. I don't know) and I was wondering if they would be appropriate.
Having spent an awful lot of time on SO over the years, I can appreciate the community here not wanting a crapflood of questions like the age-old "How do I parse HTML with a regex" one programming newbies seem to ask a variant of every five minutes over there.
I guess I just wanted to know where the community would draw the line on how "stupid" questions can be - in my present state of complete uselessness, that's the best I could manage.
Also, someone at my level would be unable to give much back by way of answers.
