The following is an unpaid advertisement for SDF's Tutorials Update Week (a holiday I 
totally made up, but one that I will argue is nonetheless important).

The "SDF, UNIX and INTERNET Tutorials" are "a shared, member contributed set of 
tutorials targeting existing and potential SDF users who are interested in the 
examples."

trying tutorials and then letting others know when something isn't clear or something

you can post in the TUTORIALS board on SDF's BBOARD to identify problems in the 
tutorials or to suggest updates.  You can also get in touch with an SDF member and ask 
them to help relay your input.  Or better yet, become an SDF member yourself.
