Courage, Erik!

As far as I know ("AFAIK") this is the only list for general discussion and 
mutual advice. Really it is for people of all levels. Sure there are some 
arcane subjects discussed here at a highly expert level, but newbie 
problems are just as welcome and usually receive prompt and clear answers. 
So don't despair of the list. I guess I am not a newbie, and I've been 
reading the list for ages now - but there is still a lot of stuff that is 
beyond me, for example anything to do with databases (I don't use 'em); 
anything remotely clever to do with the Internet; anything to which the 
answer contains the word "shell". I've stopped feeling embarrassed about it 
- we all have to start somewhere and nobody can know everything. So keep 
the questions coming.
