For all the years I've been a geek, I've never felt comfy learning to code until now. I've been pulling computers out of dumpters for years and making them into happy Linux boxes but it stops there. Hardware I dig. Ones and zeroes I get. High-level coding? Uhhh...

Mind you: I'm a geek by experience and not by education. That means I'm watching and learning more than I want to stick my nose in it. I do enough of that in the real world. I had a revelation recently. I finally came to understand the inner meaning of a subroutine as a black box with a slot door. I'd explain but it's kinda silly.
