Give up before you've even started? What sort of wondrous children are

and whose fault is this?
As someone who tried (half-heartedly) and failed to get a degree in
Aeronautical Engineering in UL, I have to say that programming and
computers in general are simple to figure out, and easy to pick up.
Learning how to program isn't advanced magick or involve anything to do
with reading notes/books - it involves liberal application of removing
finger from arse.
