I don't think there's ever a line to overstep unless you're in debt and have no money to replace anything you might break in the process of learning. I saved up enough to ensure the replacement of most things if I ever broke them. In other words I essentially insured myself from any mistakes I made that would result in damages. The experience I've gotten from doing this is priceless, albeit far from painless.

Yes. That I will do. It seems like I've done all I can and more and still cannot rectify the problem.

stands at times of challenge and controversy.
