  I've always had trouble egtting past a certain part(?) of some things. For 
instance, I aced math all the way through geometry and then 15 years later while 
trying to go to community college I did it again until I got to calculus and was like being in a nice '65 GTO doing about 120 mph and suddenly a 
10 foot thick block wall pops up in front of you with no braking room. I stuck 
with the courses for another week but it did no good as I just kept getting 
farther and farther lost.

  I've tried to learn (online and with books, can't afford school anymore since 
I live on a disability check) programming in C++ for Linux, Python and Ruby. I'd 
give my right cod to learn to program and especially to try it with a machine 
language  because I'm so sick and tired of the bloat languages are causing 
anymore, but again I get lost pretty quickly and frustrated.

  It's similar with other things but I never know what particular 
subject/job/whatever-I-should-call-it it will happen with until I start at it. I 
also have a kinda messed up memory, so, when I did take a curious look at Vi and 
emacs a few years ago, it took all of about an hour +/- on each just piddling 
around to know I would be lost using them.

  So, I mainly stick with gui stuff and once in a while ask how to get a little 
thing done. Oh in the woods, heh.
