Sucks, doesn't it?
Being a newbie myself, the only advise that I can give you is to post to newsgroups like;
Post politely. Respond politely, even to the not-so-polite responses that you will eventually get. And most importantly do NOT cross-post. There is much more information to be learned in the above newsgroups including signal integrity; I learned about the SI-LIST from the above newsgroups.
For the first few weeks after subscribing to this list I got the impression that the only topic dealt with here regarded simulation. However, I have seen posts and responses, even helpful ones, to topics other than simulation. Even similar to yours.
Maybe they are offended at the mention of "beginner" or "newbie". I really do not know because I have seen posts and responses to such topics as "where do I start?" I posted a topic asking about magnetic interference when laying out reed relays. Maybe it was because I included "newbie" in my post that my only responses were the "Out of Office" ones that you are probably getting.
Heartwarming, isn't it?
Is there a FAQ for this mailing list that would inform someone of what is an appropriate topic? I have no clue. The only thing that I noticed after subscribing was that advertisements have to be approved. And on that note, is anyone else receiving a lot of SPAM after subscribing to the SI-LIST?
In any case Matthias, I thought that you might appreciate at least some type of response.

Because I did not read any reactions on this mailing list until now
- was my question too dumb?
- was it off-topic or in any other way not appropiate?
