Do you ever read man pages or tutorials and realize that your plight is hopeless.

In that, you sort of get it, but understanding it completely is somehow beyond you.

You can feel it, that sense of understanding just beyond your grasp. You feel, sometimes, you may just get it........and then realise you don`t.

You can learn what to type into a bash shell, or make a script that does what you want it to do. And, despite the satisfaction in that, you know, deep down, that you don`t actually know how it all works.

It`s a bit like music.........
