The funny thing is that looking back...the clearest memory I have is fear. I've always been afraid of my software and hardware. I think there are at lest two reasons.
1. I'm poor and hardware and software was very expensive for me.
but the second condition I think was most responsible

2. I have never really known what I am doing.
There is always a vast body of knowledge that I know is there, but just can not reach.

I've always needed far more courage than I should to play with hardware!

For me, this is really hard stuff!!":O}
