Why? Because I am learning. It seemed like the way to do it. I didn't know all those things could happen. There is NO documentation, manual or tutorial for that matter that gives clear, in English directions on how to do something. People just assume that everyone knows techie talk. So they explain in technical terms in which 98% of us don't understand. So we have to do things by trial and error and learn by our mistakes and pray that someone who does know can explain in a way that we can understand.
