Ignorance is Bliss

A quick phone call to my Computer Engineer son (more bragging later) has just reminded me how very little I understand about that which I have just started. Oh well, we soldier on.

I called with about three questions about the bare-bones basics of Movable Type posting and configuration, and had about ten more before we were five minutes into the conversation. It was at about this point that he sighed, and said something like "What made me think this was going to be easy?"

He had set up the whole blog for me, and left it to me only to pick a stylesheet and start posting. I kind of feel like a kid whose Dad has driven him to the lake, rowed him to the middle, baited his hook, cast the line into the water, and then handed him the pole, and convinced him he's fishing! Hey Andy, stand by with that net in case I reel in something I can't handle.
