No doubt I am over my head, but indoctrination by fire is a great teacher especially if there are great minds such as yourself to keep me on the straight and narrow. Am I trying to learn too fast: absolutely, as I have tackled a project to help a friend who has zero PC skills. I have good PC skills but not in this arena, but most definitely want to learn. Trying to get ready for a seminar 2nd week in Dec. Will I make it? Dont know until it gets here, but I will do all within my power to do so. I know I am leaning on this forumn for help. I have helped many individuals in my area in the past and thorougly enjoyed showing my skills to people that WANT to learn. Im sure, in your past, you tackled projects outside your scope of comfort. This is what I have done; no doubt. Can I learn? Sure. Question is, can I learn quickly enough? I know what I want, but the road to get there does not have a GPS(except people like you). I am trying desperately to help a fleching friend. As I have gotten older, things dont come as quickly as they used to. And a surgery for a brain tumor hasnt made it that much easier. Although they could not get all the tumor, life goes on. But now my suspicion is, that they removed the brain and left the tumor. So I got to teach the tumor new tricks. Been an engineer for 30 + years and I AINT giving up now. So bear with me and please lend me some of your knowledge and skills. I may prove to be a very worthy student. Or at least my seven grandson's may think that.
Rome wasn't built in a day(Probably took a week). I try to do this with ever spare moment I have. 4 hours sleep is a norm lately, but geez I love this. I'm sure I could pay someone to design a screen layout(and may have to) but what happiness is in doing that. What would I learn? Ok I gots to get off this soap box.
Gerry, I do appreciate people with your knowledge that take the time to share
