Since all my knowledge comes from merely being a superfan of the sport, I am often unable to contribute anything other than insight or collected knowledge. I do understand concepts deeply, but when actual maths come into play, I get lost very quickly, and am unable to contribute.
Like most engineers, I do have a fertile mind, and my engineering friends often enjoyed having me sit in on the problem solving portion of their projects until the actual quantifying came into play, which made me feel like I was batting a couple leagues higher than I should.
But since I often lack the pure technical, I know that if I am unable to contribute, at least if I am even keeled I can be valuable to the forum in many other ways, as I do feel this site is the best of the best on the web for discussion of Formula 1. I learned this early, as just because I know more about motor sport and autos in general than all of my friends, I am still a dull pencil in this forum.
But in about 1 week I am going back to school for the first time since high school to take a webmaster program. This contains a programming and logic course, three levels of Java to get my OOP fully started, XHTML and CSS, Internet security, Linux, and a few others. This will cement an already varied IT career that many graduates would be jealous of.
I digress off topic here now, but I guess once I am done my program, I better be good at using the quote function
