One of the unfortunate things about thinking "this is such common knowledge that I don't have to mention it" is people assuming "they didn't mention this, they must be ignorant of it".

The lesson: if you find yourself thinking "everyone knows this", try your hardest to imagine a circumstance where someone wouldn't, and explain for /that/ person.

@noelle eugh yeah we learned about this in my IT class, try describing just a "basic" thing to someone who doesn't know the names of icons or what they look like.

@noelle that's basically the back story of my not blogging for the past several years… Can't remember how many times I've been telling that to myself :-(
