But it took me close to two years to feel that I was the master of the computer rather than the computer being the master and I a slave...
It took much longer to feel good but at least I started feeling comfortable only with time.
It is the same thing with courting a girl, learning swimming, cycling,learning car driving, flying a plane...
In what way is computer skills different?
