I'm not a guru like most on this list, which is why I rarely chime in despite having been subscribed for 5 or 6 years, but Aaron nailed it here. I used this technique when I wanted to run my own DNS, mail & web servers and managed to teach myself all I needed to know to accomplish those things simply by reading what was available online. I also picked up a few books along the way, but everything you need is on the 'net.
You stand in what appears to be a room designed specifically
for studying the stars. Lying haphazardly cast about the room
are several charts with constellations, some neatly folded,
others lying left open. Beside a few of the starcharts are
several magical tomes.
