Not at all. If you persist working through a problem with us as long as you did, you're certainly no knucklehead.
Problems can knock us all back. Not just because of the hassle of fixing it, but also because you suddenly realise what you take for granted, and the impact of losing it hits home.
I'll have a word with Wills next time I see him. He flies with the RAF so he may be up for a bit of competition with you - how about a dogfight, or a race to the coast and back?
Winner gets a piece of cake! (Might have to bring your own helicopter, though).
Have a great day, and safe computing
BTW - I just deleted your screenshots from my system.
