As I mentioned before, I find it quite .... unusual that someone who claims to
have a Ph.D. degree appears to be absolutely incapable of doing the simplest
research, or understanding documentation that contains the information that he
apparently wants but doesn't spell it out explicitly in a step one, step two
manner.

For the benefit of anyone who doesn't know, a Ph.D. is basically a degree
certifying that the holder is qualified to do research.  In the words of
someone whose identity I can't recall at the moment, "capable of learning what
nobody yet knows."

So how in the name of the great white whale does someone of Karl's obvious
limited abilities manage to get a Ph.D.?  Most of the Ph.D.'s that I know,
including an EE who ultimately decided that he would rather be a plumber, are
among the sharpest folks around and a downright pleasure and privilege to
interact with.
