There is no escape from the fact that if you want to use a machine that operates on hierarchal logic, you have to be smarter than the machine. These machines do what you tell them to do –not what you want them to do.
You might understand this better as, “You need someone to learn you ‘puters.”
In that case, reprogram the mush in your head that you call a brain with the rote knowledge presented by Hectictar and this machine will function exactly as she describes.
Lucky for you, the machine really doesn’t care that you are too dumb to understand why it works.
