I know the jumping before understanding happening on occasion... =8^(
The most important thing, tho, is to stay willing to learn new things and
to learn from mistakes, which we all make, unfortunately (yes, me too,
unfortunately). That's one thing I don't think anyone here will fault you
with. Honestly, sometimes you /do/ ask "simple" questions, but one thing
that /can/ be said is that you've continuously been willing to learn, and
once you figure it out, I don't see you asking the same thing again! =8^)
I wish I could /always/ say the same about myself, but unfortunately,
sometimes I get hard-headed. =8^( I like to tell myself I'm getting a
bit wiser with experience, and it doesn't happen as much as it used to,
but regardless, every once in awhile, life kicks some sense into me, only
because I was being too hard headed to see it /until/ it got to that kick!
