It might help to explain the title if I told you that I once debated against the premise that "all fear stems from ignorance". I lost, convinced that at least we are much more comfortable about things we know about. This paper is not very technical, and is intended to be of help to those who know what an oscilloscope is, but don't know where to stick the probe on a microprocessor. Relax, this won't hurt.
