I think this is incredibly patronising.  I have done all this, and much
much more.  A long long time ago.  Now, I have almost no time for this.
It is too little, too late.  If it was 2 years ago, it would be a
completely different story.

To _lose_, I have my self-respect.   I get insulted and critisized if I
post almost anything.  Your post is just an example of this.
