Syntax error (09 Feb 2005)
My learning curve isn't so much steep as overhanging. But I have learned that my computer can do so much more than I previously thought. For instance, I recently spent an entire day programming it to send out all my mail with my name included at the bottom! But perhaps my biggest humiliation comes in the form of the Playstation that sits in the corner of my sons' bedroom.
Indeed, as I write, I am stinging from yet another drubbing at Crash Bandicoot, a game so easy it makes Space Invaders look hi-tech. My inability to master even the basic skill level has made me the family laughing stock.
