I have tried many of these articles and have had little to no success with any of them.
Yes I know nothing about most of this. I get lost. What does "vi" do? What is "emacs"?
I am stuck in the middle of Iowa with every one of my frinds thinking that I am an idiot for using the mac. I want to learn this stuff - I want to make form mail work on my machine. I want to understand this stuff!!!
Where do I start? Can I take a class - buy a book? Can someone come over to my house and show me how to use this stuff?
Please point me to a nice beginning point. I really REALLY want to learn this AND understand what it is I am doing.
thanks. . .
