Don't worry about it - I've been turned down for jobs that I was 
well-qualified for, and jobs that I wasn't qualified enough for.
Unfortunately, HR people seem to all too often have unreasonably
high expectations, and people like us fall victim to them. Plus,
they have no way of seeing one's potential to learn what they 
don't already have experience with.  - Mike
