less about
computers than in that moment ?  try again to discover the unknown 
depths of your comp ?
spending weeks for figuring out why your hardware dont work ? be 
horrorfied by a monster
called unix ? hmmm. YES

i think its a good winter to wake up the pinguin again and try to learn 
usefull ....
