If you want to be an expert, start acting like one
right now. To begin with, no expert says he isn't an
expert. Others can tell you that, or the equivalent,
if you give them reason to.

It doesn't really matter what the others have. You
must cope with what you have (or can, and will have).
Remember, a warrior thinks neither of victory nor
defeat. Battle many as you would have one, and the
lonesome warrior as you would have an army!

The best way to communicate technology and in
particular code is by mail, or, by extention, mailing
lists or Usenet/NNTP (which is virtually same as mail,
only public). I suppose IRC is the second best way,
only that's a wide gap in between.
