I've never read a C book in my life.  As John Evans stated, I asked some
pretty stupid things when I first joined this list (and got flamed out the
wazoo :), but that was for about one month.  I got the hang of it, and now
I've never encountered something I couldn't figure out how to code.  I just
wished that there was a place for newbies (like I was) to be greeted more
kindly.  Personally, I don't care about the flames, but some may get
discouraged and throw the whole things to hell you know?  I'd hate to see

Not really :)

I agree that the list you spoke of would be quite progressive, but that's
for another post ;)
