Some more: Now we understand exchother perfectly.
I _do_ need to read at least two books in order to even contemplate
doing something useful - I can not, not under any circumstances, program
on something I do not 100% (not 99.99%!) understand.
And now I hear that Hurd is based on concepts that have 10 years advance
on me in matters of basic computer science.

If necessary, I will retake a course in Software Enginneering ... but I
need to understand the design priciples, and the scientific philosophy
behind them.
