Excellent. Tutorials written by people who have just encountered and resolved an issue, are usually so much more lucid than those written by 'experts'.

They may not cover all of the subject, or delve into the deep dark recesses as the expert might, but they are all the better for that. Experts have usually long forgotten where the dragons are, and end up re-writing reference manuals instead of tutorials.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
