It's kind of funny how my mind works. I'm great at some things, like I can think in several levels of abstraction at once, which helps immensely with coding. And simple arithmetic like pointer math I'm good at, as well as sets (usually though I still get tripped up sometimes) and (related) lambda calculus.

However, go to geometry or anything non-trivial in algebra and you lose me. Plus there are gaping holes in my knowledge due to my lack of schooling. I didn't even know trig was based around triangles until my 20s. Laugh | :laugh:
