You are never as smart (or dumb for that matter) as any test, person, study sais you are. Face the fact that you will never be all knowing, and you will find it easier to ask questions.

Oh, and like I try to teach my students:

Ask smart questions.

If you want to know your own name it's a lot better to ask

"What's my name?"

instead of

"Who am I?" <- A lot more complicated question...

Now why did I even say that?

I don't know.

Then STFU!

Ok...

When it comes to linux? I'm about as confused as a baby in a topless bar.


That makes two of us. :roll:

It's taken me almost two years to attain my "guru" rank. I must be a slow learner B-)

* At about 5 years old I could wire up VCRs, stereos, and video games myself
* Gentoo is my daily OS. I do everything in it.
* I can read source code and figure out what's going on in many circumstances, but I'm not a programmer.
* I google things extensively in most cases before asking for help.
* All my coworkers will describe me as a computer guru
* Most Dell forum users will as well (10,000 technical posts)
* I got a Dell certification on all HW in 1999.
* I find NT 4.0 a really easy OS to fix.
* I love Unix. I own several Sun systems, an SGI, an Apple running A/UX (Apple Unix)
* I run a Dell laptop hack site.
* I've played with BEOS, OpenStep, FreeBSD, hosted a website on OpenBSD/sparc
* I've installed every version of Windows except NT 3.1 (yes, Windows 1.0 and 2.0!)
* I've ran Suse/390 on the Hercules mainframe emulator in portage
* I've used an AS/400 before
* I've submitted fixes to bugs.gentoo.org
* I started a project to make Portage run on Solaris, after being told it would never work (and it does now with a few limitaions)
* I ofen buy "broken" computer parts at used computer stores and have a decent record of fixing them (2$ 80gb HD, 2$ FX5200 card, 2$ 2gb scsi hd)

So what do you think?
