*grin*  I've been doing this for several years now and it's lots
of fun.  I still regularly break things and scream for help from
my other tech friends and from this list.  I'm still learning
heaps and heaps.  And I'd say I'm an experienced Linux user now
... I answer probably as many questions as I asked, and I act as
"the techie person" for linux-newbie friends as well.

It's a neverending cycle :)
