  • Hi.. this stuff is pretty straight forward to do.. i know you want someone to do it all for you, but if you invest a few hours of your day following online guides, you would learn so much. .. i know this because i was in the same spot you are now a few months ago and all it really took was the will to get my hands dirty.
    with that said, if you ever get the urge to pursue this for yourself, hit the IRC channel and they can answer any questions you may have (is a really active chatroom)…
    good luck to you :) ..

    ps: I signed up just now, after months of lurking, to post this response. please do not take it negatively. i respect your decision either way.
