I just wanted to say that I'm really not fearful of asking dumb questions,
etc. As I said before, part of it has to do with not wanting to bother
people when I can figure out the answer myself. But in thinking about
leaving my dumb questions to posterity, I was more concerned with my public
reputation should I ever develop my business or even should I write
articles, which I hope to do, to the point that a potential client or
someone otherwise judging my abilities might find one of my dumb questions
on this list's archive.
