I know the foregoing comment is mean to be supportive, but I'm afraid
it has the opposite effect. Learning something new every day, at
minimum, is a value we both share. On the other hand, if I learn
something new today, something new about how to program a computer is
going to be low on my priority list. I'd prefer to learn something
new about literature, art, music, history, current affairs, science,
my profession, a new physical recreation, a hiking trip, making a new
friend, etc. Constantly climbing the computer learning curve
interferes with pursuing those interests I value more.
