Is it just me?

I have been messing about with computers for many years now, I started programming with Cobol & assembler in the early eighties and have been both self taught and then studied at Uni. I am lucky enough now to be doing my hobby for a living (so I should be reasonably competent).
But the thing that really amazes me is this: everytime I look around these forums or decide to study a new area I am suprised by just how much I do NOT know.
I guess it is the old "The more I learn the less I know" syndrome.
Is it just me or does anybody else find the same thing?

Yep, we all find the same thing.

If anyone tells you they know it all, they're either a liar, a self-opinionated bore or both! :-)

But remember that your offspring assume that you know it all

I know the person you mean, I am sure I have met him!

If you know a little bit more than the other guy, *you* are the genius!

I have always found that , when you get to the platau, theres another to scale just along a bit.

I have also found that when ever I am told by an expert that 'No lad it cant be done' I get this feeling that someone somewhere - just did
Keep at.
There is always some thing you dont know or as in my case - did know but now I need the gen have to come here to be told it all over again.

"your offspring assume you 'think' you know it all"

Most people probably feel this way. I feel that I know nothing about computers when I read some of these threads and I'm sure it's true that 'the more you learn, the less you know.'
