I prefer to start my journey following examples first and coming back to theory later.  It'll will be easier to learn a new programming language.  Rather than the other way round.  It'll be too tire easily loosing interest.

I'm working, testing Mono and replying postings on a guest (VM) of a virtual machine. If unfornately I ran that command it only deleted the guest, not the complete box.

I feel I must apologize for my misbehavior.  I'm really sorry.

I just thought at that moment that this would teach you to dig at least 
a tiniest bit on the subject before going out and asking so basic 
questions in a so general mailing list.

I was in bad mood and didn't want to offend or hurt anyone.  Sorry, again.
