"RTFM"

I had a shoe repair shop for 45 years.
When I first started, I worked for an old German fellow. He had just bought a new stitcher to sew soles onto mens' shoes.

He still had the old one stuck in the corner so I asked if I could take it apart and put it back together.
OK says he. Took me all winter in my spare time; but when I got it back together it worked. Even had 3 extra parts left over. {They were not really necessary}
As you might guess, there are a lot of gears, rollers, cams and various other parts in this machine: about 95% of them under the black cover on top.

Kinesthetic - is that another way of saying "Hands on learning"?

Still at it for a while anyhow.

ditto

my wife describes herself as a kinaesthetic learner

wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinesthetic_learning

if i tell her or explain to her what to do it goes in one ear and out the other.

if i sit in front of her computer and show her, likewise.

but if she sits in front of her computer with me at her side, after 2 to 3 go's at it, she retains it

we get some new members who knowingly or unknowingly are kinesthetic and they cannot follow our directions. they get frustrated and we get frustrated.

the best advice i can give them is to seek out and contact a linux user group in their area, where they can meet with people and get the help they need

cheers

Just clicked on the link, wiz. It is exactly the method that I use the most.:D

Kinda like getting an aircraft into a strip that is too short to get it out of, ;)eh?
@VP9KS
Reminds me of a student I had one time.

Two brothers bought an Aeronca Chief - same as what I learned to fly in. I was the only instructor with tail dragger time so they became my students. One bro was fine. The other was not.

He did not want to do the airwork. So we spent 4 hours in the pattern without any success on his part.
Finally, on our last go around, I told him that I was going to land on the taxi strip next to the runway {small uncontrolled field - Riverview in Jenison MI}. He did not believe I could do it.
We rolled up to a stop just short of going onto the runway. He did not like what I told him next. Never saw him again.

BTW His bro went on and got his private license.

Just a digression from the Old Geezer again!

Virtual machines are a saviour for any kind of tinkering and especially with Linux. I have trashed countless distros of Linux fortunately all in the confines of a virtual machine. I use Linux mint as my main operating system and tinker around with other distros in a virtual box.if there’s anything I’m unsure how to do and what the results of that will be then I will just test it inside a virtual box and if I trash a system it’s no spilt milk

So - someone should "Read The Fine Manual" regarding virtual machines BEFORE they 'muck-up' their computer?
If only someone had told them to "RTFM" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ :)

How did he expect to fly with no experience? Sounds like he needed to keep his feet on the ground. I can imagine what you said to him. Something like "You must become one with the aircraft, young padawan". :D:D
This makes me glad I don't fly :/ And wonder about those I did fly with :\
