    Not that people here aren't helpful, but there really are better forums
    for newbies to post in. (I'd strongly recommend lurking here and not
    running any code you see unless you understand every character of it

    One such forum is security-basics, over at SecurityFocus (provided you
    are not morally opposed to their forums). See their foundations page
    and read the archives or subscribe here:
