    great tips! thanks for running this blog. i’m glad i found it by accident.

    sometimes you seem to be responding to questions – do you frequent any newsgroups/forums/irc channels? or are these from people you know?

    another thing – why wordpress (as opposed to a more structured knowledge base and/or something more open/collaborative)?

    (who are you? must be a busy person to be touching all of these things on a daily basis 🙂

    Questionable tips! I think this blogger needs to step up and post better tips. I think he is fairly smart, but he needs to bring it to this blog. I see a severe lack of consistency with these tips.
