The great thing about patching software is that you generally don't
need to learn a programming language, you just have to do enough to
get it working.

I spend most of my day fixing software in languages I probably
wouldn't be able to write FizzBuzz in from scratch without Google ;)

But seriously, if you want to work through this bug together at some
point, just let me know.  It's rare that a problem is insurmountable,
it usually just requires two things - time and persistence.
