But you have to remember some "newbies" are only "newbies" here - they may have fairly sophisticated knowledge of computing in general or (like me when I was a "newbie" here) have worked on Unix for years and are just trying to figure out the Linux way to do the things they're used to doing.

I notice that most of the truly difficult questions (including a couple I've asked) get no answers at all.
