Wow very well said Amelith! YEAH Learning is FUN and knowledge is power!Don't worry, most of the time not the hardware is what counts the most, but what you do with it. If one would buy a billion dollar PC decorated with Swarovski crystals for Need For Speed, i'll "respect" 1000x more your PC because (i can only guess that) you will be using it to learn something (you created an account on MT). And i also bet that you will care for your hardware, unlike the one with Swarovskis.
Just got that from my reading but it should not be confused with something like acquiring knowledge to take advantage of anyone or any individual per se, on my own interpretation it is for furthering my knowledge to be used for my personal enrichment. Means to change yourself through acquired knowledge not anything else. Learning defintely! Yeah!What's the context of the origin of knowledge is power? Is it knowledge for strategic use or intellectual?
