The Internet has gone commercial and become totally useless.

Do you remember when people used to talk about "the information highway" while trying to describe the Internet?
I suppose I've been away from the Internet in general for too long a time. A few minutes ago I attempted to go to a website that I used all the time couple years ago. It is called "how stuff works." My, my, my, how things have changed while I was away. I used to go there for answers and found them in abundance. Now, all I find there are ads; ads for how to purchase the item I was trying to get information about. I didn't inquire about prices or where I might find them should I decide to buy one.

Could someone out there enlighten this dumb old hillbilly? Do you know a website that tells you how to fix things and in doing so explains how it works?

Or, failing that, if you are someone whom in the past has needed to discover how a dual flush toilet works, perhaps you could share with me how you found out. I would appreciate it immensely. If you would be so kind, please share with me, via e-mail what ever you might consider to be helpful to me. My address is clarence DOT bowles AT gmail DOT com.

Thanking you in advance
