Damn it, _always_ swallow your pride and ask for help! Linux is
not something which follows any kind of natural law, like e.g.
math. It is all man-made stuff, someone did something, wrote
something, a program ensued. So you gotta learn what was on
that someone's mind.
Best of luck, and keep asking!
