Unless it is a burden to the list, I can learn if we proceed. I can't
learn the process then be able to help others with the selfsame problem
in the future, if I skip the learning process and move on. I know I am
frustrating you all, but you are not aware of all the things I can now
do because of what I have learned from the list. I have even helped
others with the knowledge. I am certain it is a 'right-brain'
'left-brain' problem for me, not just being a newbie or just plain stupid.
One thing that is evidence to me is this: I can now use a shell, and
type in the appropriate command to join two 'avi' files together,
without having to think about what I must do. I type with confidence
and don't worry about typing errors, because I now know that this can be
done without damage to the system, only the need to re-type the command
and correct any mistake. There are several other command line things I
can do without problem. I can apply instructions provided me faster,
because of my on going familiarity with these taught and learned
activities. When I have learned what you guys know, no one will know
how stupid I was; I will be up-to-speed and joining you in helping
others. And Blessings o you David M.
