	Tutorial = The UNIX Tool Box       by Jerry Stutte.
                    
		    The "Unix Tool Box" is a collection of Unix/Linux/BSD         	      commands and tasks which are useful for IT work or for
	      advanced users.  This is a practical guide with concise
	      explanations, however the reader is supposed to know what
              s/he is doing.  With its menu structure, it provides an			      excellent resource for beginners and advanced users.

									
		Jerry Stutte has gone 73 days without a security
		incident.  He should run rkhunter and tiger.

		 Vim (NOT Fandango) Expanded!!!!    by Bill Odom.    
     

			Bill did a great presentation on VIM 2 weeks
			ago at Perl Mongers.   This will NOT be the same
			presentation!

			NEW APPLICATIONS!

				NEW EXAMPLES!

					OLD JOKES!


                        Bill has more material to explore but you didn't 
			need to be there for the earlier talk.  Its fine
			to pick it up at this point.

			   This presentaion on the "Vi IMproved" text
			   editor is much more than a tutorial. It has
			   two major goals:

			   * Give people who'd never used vim before an
			   * idea of its power, and whet their appetites
			   * so they'd want to learn more.

			   * Show more experienced vim users one or more
			   * new features, techniques, or tricks that
			   * they could use immediately.
			   
			   A tutorial wouldn't do much to convince the
			   first group that vim was worth their time,
			   and a tutorial would've just bored the
			   second.  With that said, there's a lot of
			   desire for solid tutorial content from people
			   that are already convinced that vim is
			   something they want to better understand.
			   
			   With enough continued interest, we may expect many
			   short focused vim tutorials in tutorials in
			   the future...or maybe workshops.


			   Bill Odom builds left handed widgets, which
			   he discards because he is right handed.  Or is
			   it the other way around?
