    After I got through about half of my reply, I thought to check your home node and realized that you had more XP than I and I suspected that I was teaching my grandpa how to suck eggs (you can just ignore that comment if you ain't from the South). I almost scratched the post, but figured that I have tripped so many times on that little problem that I figured it might be worth rehashing to others. Sorry if it was a bit pedantic.

    Hey, what do other monks think? Was I explaining something that was too obvious, like "here's how to add two numbers together"? I wouldn't mind getting a feel for that. I don't want to waste bandwidth if everyone feels they are way beyond that.

      I think you were fine in replying. The wording of the question would *seem* to indicate someone of not great experience, along with the comments on the home page. I was, in fact, thinking of a reply along a similiar vein before I went off to lunch. I couldn't think of a good example of the top of my head that would illustrate the point well. Yours was quite good (worthy of being ++'ed).

      And, unlike you, I didn't take the time to go checkout the homepage to see the XP/writeups (well, until you mentioned in your previous post, anyway).

      well truth be told you were correct in your assumption, i am still a relative newbie and i wasn't trying to flame your answer (i appreciated it :) i just wanted it known that i am not THAT much of a newbie.
