But in many cases, even when using the manuals you get with things, they either don't cover what I need (because I'm looking in the wrong place) or it's a bug or some such, not covered by *any* manual. If the suggestion that SSH isn't started automatically in this latest version of Raspbian is correct then where would a noob start looking in 'man pages' to fix it (considering all the attempts I have made so far doesn't seem to have worked either)?
Additionally, on the whole 'learning by reading' thing ... I suffer from Tinnitus (24/7) and it ranges from distracting to very distracting and so it is impossible for me to really concentrate on anything that would be best done in silence (as I can't have silence). So, if I put the TV or radio on I end up getting distracted by it. Add to that the fact that I've *never* been 'a reader' (I can, I just don't do so for pleasure) and because of the Tinnitus (a form of ADD), I *prefer* (= generally find it more productive / rewarding) to experiment or look for specific solutions to the questions from those who know much more than I (via Google or here etc).
What you hear you forget. What you read you remember. What you do you understand. ;-)
Just in the same way I believe the world goes round when I help others where I can on subjects I am skilled (or more skilled than them) in. ;-)
My version of that is text files in Dropbox. ;-)
