Wow. I would have said the exact opposite. Can one really learn Python 
in hours? Then why are all the Python books so large? I can easily 
imagine learning the rudiments of Python in a few hours, but knowing 
enough so that you're not embarassed to put it on your resume would 
take significantly longer. At least to me.

Perhaps at 43 I've simply become too old for this community and need to 
move on.
