I agree, most of what I know about computers I taught myself...or 
learned watching the experts...
I even installed a Soundblaster card in windows 3.1 once and I hacked 
the win.ini file to get it working...
What can I say I was young, desperate, and had time for it. Had someone 
else done it for me, I still would not know anything about computers.
Did I mention That was before internet became affordable to the public?

  When working on a computer you have to know enough:
  To fake what you don't know.
  Google what you can't fake.
  How (and when) to 'motivate' the computer to do what Google won't tell.
