Guess what? We've all had to go through some discovery process to solve a problem or two. If the work is significant enough (or not intuitively obvious) why not write it up so others can benefit from your work. This is exactly what I've done here. These "how to"s represent some of the steps I've had to go through to accomplish some task I needed to do. Of course, I make no guarantees as to the correctness of the steps (things change) or the information. I may make some assumptions about your knowledge level and if what I write may seem unintelligible to you then maybe you should check out a book or learn more about the topic from either other webpages. Please don't email me to help you out!

However, I do appreciate any feed-back that will help to clarify, correct, or improve the contents of these "how to"s. If you have some information that should be included in these pages then send me email.
