Very, very well done, in my humble opinion. I found it very informative even after having been here for a little over a year. Sometimes, you just wish you could ++ a node more than once, and I found this to be one of those times.

The admonition about it being their job to mine for the great ideas that can be found in here was right on. I also enjoyed your "starting points for getting used to" being here, especially #5. Perhaps that's something that should be mentioned more often.

Your offer of help to those who might be having a problem was very generous, and it is a spirit of generousity that I see time and time again here-one of the reasons I found myself returning so frequently after I first found my way here.

As to Marza's surprise about your advice to say hello to NodeReaper sometimes, I thought of the quote (the source of which I sadly do not know), "that which does not kill us, makes us stranger." But then again, in this community, I have yet to see anyone remain a stranger for long (unless they chose to).

    Forgive a newbie for commenting but... The original quote was Frederick Nietzsche, "That which does not kill us makes us *stronger*, the stranger part is either a rather amusing misqoute the authorship of which could probably be legitimately claimed by numerous individuals (including myself, whilst drunk;-)) or it is a typo. Yours pedantically Plotinus
