Rash, you can either pick on me and alienate yourself with me, leaving me despising you (again) and you with an empty feeling, or we can treat each other as equals as I thought you'd already learnt to do. The choice is yours.
Regarding your penultimate point, I should like to draw your attention to the fact that this guy has been continually downloading, installing, burning to CD, deleting, redownloading, reinstalling, probably burning to more CDs, Dev-C++, Allegro, FBlend, DUMB, JGMOD, FMOD, several Linux distributions, QNX, and god knows what else, for the past year. I've rarely caught him actually using these downloads. When he does, he runs into a small problem (one that could easily be solved with a little experimentation or doc-reading), and promptly gives up and tries something else. However, since you obviously know better, you can take over as his teacher.
