    Or, not realizing that there's an easier way to do it, you'll decide that programming is way over your head and just quit I guess there's a balance to be struck... know enough to know that there's a whole lot more out there, but you don't need to know it all.

    It also depends on your personality. If you're persistent and determined to make the darned thing work, then jumping in would be ok. But if you're a "I'll smack it around a bit and if it doesn't shape up then I'm tossing it" type of person, it might be a better idea to know more before going big.

    Well if you quit, then I guess you'll realize that you don't have what it takes to code.

    I don't think that's always true, but there is some validity to it. Determination is a great virtue to have when you're a programmer, but you don't necessarily need a warehouse full of it.

    Anyways, I think I'll stop talking, because this discussion is turning pointless Thanks goes to me for starting this retarded debate.
