That's it. I'm convinced.
See the equipment list below. It's all going up for sale and I'm buying a P&S.
You guys are good.
You have to admit, this thread is like someone posting on a pilot forum "I've literally never touched or been inside a plane before, but I want to learn to fly, and instead of a single prop I want to learn in an F14 fighter jet".
Yes, there are absolutely advantages to a more powerful tool, but if you don't know how to use the basics of the tool, the more advanced parts of the tool may hurt you more than help you.
A camera's job is to get out of the way. You see something you want to capture, if your camera makes you press 6 buttons you're uncomfortable with before you do it, that's an eternity of missed moments.
The OP has obviously never held an SLR. Regardless of how eager and willing you are, learning takes time. If you don't know what the buttons do (or for that matter what a focal length is) then the camera is standing in the way of you capturing a moment.
