I'll add a table of contents in the next update, there is a summary already explaining what the article is about, but I'll try and improve it for the next edition!

I agree with ZeroOne and Neel in that it is difficult to get people to read topics such as this, although hopefully if it were more prominently placed more newbies would see it - and at least they'd have no excuse for not reading it either, at the moment it's unlikey that they'll even know that the tutorial exists.

Once again, thanks for all the kind comments, it makes updating this tutorial and writing others so much easier if people appear to appreciate what you're doing.
