Hey, thanks for writing - I think every project needs a "great work,
but I can't go on" email - I've written them myself :)

In regards to learning about the terminal/command line, I found that
with time and practice, it got much much easier.

The other tip I have is when you try something and it doesn't work,
grab the last error message and google it with the word ubuntu in
front my last one was installing plumi on plone; ubuntu
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'objectIds' )

It is almost guaranteed that someone else will have had the problem.
If not always ubuntu, then often redhat or debian. So many times it's
been one little almost insignificant probllem that has stood between
what II wanted and what I got :)

good luck mate,

because "The Wire" makes "Law and Order" or "CSI" look like an episode
of "The Brady Bunch."
