Hi Mac
See, i think it's the way you come across. It's quite simple, just
ask a question if you have trouble with a specific term.  You may not
be atempting to come off like you are, I fully realize new people to
some of this technology can be very frustrated.  But if you hang
around the list and ask specific questions about terms you don't
understand, you will learn.  It also helps to do a bit of research
yourself.  If there's a term you don't understand, or an idea that's
abit foggy, please ask. That's the only way you'll be able to get
away from the frustration, and start to be more technically savvy, if
you'd like to be that is.
We're here to help, not to show how cool we are.
