Steve, I highly doubt this is an example of trolling we have witnessed
here. If it really *is* trolling then i would say the "alleged
troller" should visit xah's site for a crash course in professional
trolling ASAP because he's not very good at it -- i should know!

However, i have a good sense that our new friend is just very
inexperienced and looking for advice. He may have a very limited
knowledge --or even no knowledge of computer programming-- so that
would explain the "seemingly" nonsensicalness of his questions. But we
must always remember that every one here (*ahem* and i mean everyone S-
T-E-V-E-O!) had to start from the bottom and work his or her way up
the ladder of knowledge. So next time please try to be a little less
