	My main reason for joining this list was to get answers that the
text books didn't give me and its better than sitting in a seminar where you
either know 90% of it anyway or it's not until 6 months later when you are
up to your armpits that you realize what questions you should have asked
while you were there.

	Being on a list like this is like hanging around with folks who
share your interests, fire your enthusiasm and broaden your horizons. You
overhear something that doesn't make too much sense at the time but later
when someone refers to that thing, you at least understand where they are
coming from, even if you don't know the nuts and bolts.

	I don't have much advice to give out because I'm still a little
green but hopefully someone else has the same problems that I've shared and
has gained from the advice given freely and graciously.

	Whereas some of the discussions are beyond me, they often set a
backdrop to some of the issues I come across.

	But the tips are like random sparks - like answers with no questions
- an arrival with no departure.

	They don't usually make any sense. (to me anyway)
