Well, In Hungary we used to tell: "For a newborn every joke is a new  
joke".   I can read it in reverse: "Every new joke makes a born a  
newborn".  So as long as I see the posted problems as new problems, I  
think I "entitled" to use the phrase "newbie approach".  /Not  
counting that with every found solution - hopefully - some new  
neurons were created in my brain, that again makes me a "newbie" :)/

On the other side I am using Mathematica just in the last two years  
and that is a miniscule time compared to other contributors of this  

Last, when my analysis professor - Dr. Zoltán Daróczy - kicked me out  
from an exam where he asked me about Lipót Fejér's proof and I told  
him Weierstrass second proof....., I knew immediately that I will be  
a newbie at any time when it comes to mathematics :)
