I'm writing to share my clumsy experience in using this elegant tool so you can avoid every stupid mistake I made. (I leave it to the authorities to decide if this deserves a place in the Knowledge archives.) Now that I am on the other side of my learning curve, I understand.
What I now realise, is when I read Mr. Robbins instructions, I mostly didn't recognize the significance of many of the points he made. Mr. Robbins was very clear, but I wasn't. I hope this helps you avoid my blindness.
