> If that's the perspective and the documentation conforms to the requirements that has been written about in this thread - perhaps the user needs to change their perspective?
I have explained (the difficulty of making) digital electronics to a
clueless guy. It can be done, though that may seem a thankless task.

So reference to a lower-level on-line source would help.

I have shelved projects. Because of not having readily-available support.

I have appreciated resources suggested on this list.

Visiting the moon must have been a difficult project. Yet it inspired
many to take up science and technology!
> Putting all of http://www.gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki/GNURadioCompanion into a man or info file would be pointless, it's not even the full documentation for GNU Radio.
Referring to easier documentation can't hurt.
> Good as it is it's certainly not a guide for those new to radio design.
I made radios as a kid. These projects often didn't work well. But they
helped build a scientific career!

My university tutor said that master's degrees were consolation prizes.
Given to students who missed the PhD grade.

I was given a policy to rewrite. For tip supervisors with year ten
reading skill. Yet it scored postgraduate education requirement! So I
rewrote it in cat-on-the-mat style. And a typist said she understood it
perfectly. But a lawyer whined that it couldn't express required jargon.
And the boss was incensed that she couldn't impress her boss! That
organisation "lost its contract" for doing that stuff.

A horticultural technician told me that his reading ability was that of
an eleven year old. Yet he made a huge sieve for reusing a costly soil

Thanks. I correspond about evolution with Americans. Many of whom are
ignorant of biology. So they are Young Earth Creationists! You gotta
start somewhere. Like where the other party is at.
