It seems I have the talent for sticking my foot in my mouth. I've just recently been informed that noob stands for : someone who believes they know it all , but in reality know little to nothing at all. I stand corrected. (I though I said I was a newbie)
Now that I've apparently found a book that I can understand, learning is becoming much easier. I'm starting to organize. Many of the things will save me time like the bash ctrl key functions so I've made a kind of overlay (remember Word Perfect?) that way I'll learn much faster. Seems that there are list and notes everywhere in this book. There's a lot to learn and I've got to have somewhere easy to recall the most important things. For me that's a real paper notebook.
