People sometimes ask me how I got so good with computers.

I tell them, "I read the manuals."

They never really believe me, I suspect.  But it's true.  I've been  
reading the documentation for every piece of hardware or software I  
could get my hands on since about 1987, when I read the MS-DOS 2.11  
manual cover to cover and worked through all the examples.

Reading the documentation may not be a surefire path to computer  
guruhood, but it's a good start.
