I work with a lot of university students who are extremely conversant with the tech-goodies referenced here. I find that a high level of comfort with finely-tuned consumer devices does not translate at all to things that require some effort, ranging from FTP programs to even similar items, like a DV cam.

To show them how to use these things, I use a procedure remarkably similar to the one being derided. It generally works.

10.0 times 0.1 is hardly ever 1.0.
