    A retiree speaks mind

    I take this pledge: I will not flame. I will not insult. I will try honestly to help where my limited knowledge allows. If I sometimes appear terse, I apologize.

    Therefore, I must offer sincere thanks to all those who help here. I am grateful for the myriad programmers who write, debug, and secure the software code. I am retired and have an extreme limitation of funds. Thank you all who help us idiots.

    There are no idiots here.

    There is simply a continuum of people ranging from those who will learn much to those who have learned much.

    Common to them all is the fact that they will learn more.

    A thing discovered and kept to oneself must be discovered time and again by others. A thing discovered and shared with others need be discovered only the once.
    This universe is crazy. I'm going back to my own.

    What of those who have not learned much and will not learn much?

    There are most certainly idiots, they are simply not the group of unknowing, but of the perpetual and eternal unknowing, and there are few of them.
