That one sentence brought my attention.
It took me a whole semester in school to understand one line of simplest 
code in C, but after that it was a path with no return. I only had 
background in Assembler and Pascal before. As a result my master's 
thesis was rather complex Windows program written in C++ with small 
addition of hardware. And I was not educated to be a programmer at all.

What I mean to say is that learning C is like riding a bike, it may be a 
bit tough at first, after you learn it you don't have to use it each day 
to jump on it one day and just go ahead.
Now C is my first choice when I need simple PC utilities, like file 
format converters.
