Writing documentation is, after teaching, the second most frustrating
thing in the world. Back in university I tried to hammer knowledge
into students, now I try to teach the apparentices in the company
I work for. The thought "they cannot all be f***g stupid, it
must be me" occured to me more than once. The trick of good
teaching is to listen at what point the pupil gets lost, and why.
But I am getting off-topic.
