    When you said: "I've only glanced at the files, and I'm far too amateur to understand them" you should have stopped right there. The fact that you don't understand then should have been your clue that your so-called "at first glance" was steeped in ignorance. From there you compounded your ignorant post with even more uninformed dribble. And the fact that your post was rated "4, Informative" shows that there exist too many /. folk with rating points who rate ignorant postings like your post with the most bizarre attributes.
