Well your hardly the first person to say something along the line of

'wait on a minute, don't we already have this ...'


'why not just contribute to'

My website started being just a documentation website for my traineeship
(part of traineeship required me to document everything I have learned)
then it because just a point of reference for myself when I was setting up
my Linux servers for my job. I started getting so many hits and questions
about things I thought it might be a good idea to turn it into something
that will really help the community at large.

But isn't variety the spice of life & if we wanted to make everyone do
thing one way and only offer one choice then wouldn't we just me

Date stamps, thats probably a good idea to try and put on my articles.

lol, I didn't notice that, but your right, if someone esle mentions is
I'll just say it's an inside joke about the amount of Linux documentation
out there.
