Outside of this forum, which is awesome btw, curious where most of you head (online) to get DIY tips, advice, blogs.

Books!!! still the best source of reliable info anywhere. Information found on websites is not always accurate, and some of it is downright wrong.

For the most part, what I see on sites like these is OK, but often is not complete. There just is not enough time/space to write a compressive discription of some things.

Manufacturer's web sites. Most have application and spec manuals online now.

Here is my favorite: http://books.google.com/books?id=Z8a...#PRA1-PA616,M1

You enter the subject, get 75-100 choices of books, click on "Limited preview" books, it takes you to the subject covered in that book. Review it to buy, or not.
Be safe, G
