Well that's just it. As I told you privately, you have to ask questions, otherwise we don't know where you're getting lost? The list is here to answer questions, so if you get all frustrated, it doesn't help much. So ask those questions, and with luck, someone will give you an answer that is easy to understand.

What did you think I meant about this?  I was simply saying that some of us
do not have all of the expertise and haven't followed all the threads (and I
mean ALL of them) that we might need, to know what is happening with
podcasting and the like.  I have listened to a lot of stuff on Main Menu,on
Mosen's site, on some tech podcasts, but I still need to get a regimen in
place; for instance-- how to latch onto RSS URells and how to use the News
Gator, when I have used Outlook Express but not Outlook, etc., etc., etc.
So, when I say that this stuff sounds like an"inside job", where, on a
public list people are talking about stuff that they know, I get frustrated
and don't want to sound ignorant; does this make sense to you? I totally
agree that this accessibility issue is slowly (unfortunately) being solved,
but, let's try to tell each other what is going on, whenever we can!  It was
just a turn in the road, where I thought it was time to sound off!!
