In fact I feel bad. I wish I could code better and understood Linux more deeply so I could CONTRIBUTE. Maybe one day I'll get the time aside from the 25 hours an hour I spend working for a dollar (cheap, aren't I?).

Suggestion: you can certainly contribute even if you can't code your way out of a paper bag. Help others to solve their problems on this list, and you have contributed to Linux and the Fedora community. Find good ways to do things, then write clear, accurate, and understandable instructions and you have helped hundreds of people.

It feeds on itself, though. <smile> I have been amazed by the fact that after I put my "Sendmail SMTP AUTH HOWTO" online and started working on a few other documents (mostly the "Small Netserver HOWTO" although I also offered to co-author the "Simple Mailserver HOWTO" with Benjamin Weiss), over 12,000 visitors have visited Simpaticus.com. Now I feel *responsible* for improving and growing the documents somehow!

Find some way to feel that you contribute... it's a wonderful feeling, really. I may not be all that useful, but I know that I contribute at least a little and that makes me happy.
