You can easily avoid this irritation by doing the search yourself before you post.

i always search before i post and when i find nothing i post but then people keep telling me to search (i'm gonna stop talking about this though)

but all in all i think i understand whats going on here this means that when the new version of ubuntu comes out (i should be soon theres a new alpha release according to distrowatch) then i won't need a cd

No magic. I don't see how you couldn't find anything. Perhaps this article will help: http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-searc...le-effectively

Good luck.
