Hi Tom,

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.
