i always say you can teach people syntax but logic can't be taught....

Good point Tommy. I didn't get into computers professionally until my late
20's, long after I graduated. But I took to it like a fish out of water,
largely because my Degree was in Philosophy with a concentration in
"Critical and Analytic Skills" (logic). When I started learning how to code
in RPGIII, everything just sort of intuitively made sense to me.

There is another saying that a friend of mine is fond of using: "Common
Sense isn't so common."
