SOME people don't read the manual?  In my experience, 99.44% of the
don't read the manual.

I had a manager keep asking me questions on a system.  I got together
all the
documentation on it, put it in a nice binder, and gave it to her.  She
still asked
me questions that I knew were in the docs I gave her (and the docs
even that thick).  I asked her if she read the docs I gave her, she
hadn't gotten
around to it.  6 months later she still hadn't gotten around to it, nor
anyone in
her department who I showed all of them where the docs were.

A computer guru in the real world is the person who reads the docs.
