I heard about this site from a recent DC member.. seems like a useful site run by a nice guy.
Tons of useful short little how to articles -- and the author is very willing to answer questions, etc.
Nicely designed site as well - looks like maybe a modified wordpress blog?

Some of the more recent HowTos focus on vista, so the site might be especially useful for those of you running Microsoft Vista.

If you're doing anything with Linux you might want to check out www.howtoforge.com.

Tons of useful step-by-step articles for "the young, the eager, the doomed."

Topics run from the fairly basic: Installing Songbird Media Player On Ubuntu 8.04

to ubertek articles like:

How To Set Up A Loadbalanced High-Availability Apache Cluster Based On Ubuntu 8.04 LTS  and

How to add two-factor authentication to Google Apps for your Domain using open source software

The site's organization is a bit unusual. Sometimes you'll need to dig a little to find what you want. But getting useful info on Linux always has involved a little digging. And they do have a workable search feature if there's something specific you're looking for.

Check it out. These guys can walk you through things it would take forever to track down on your own.

Hey Kids! Now you too can set up your very own Xen virtual server in the privy of your home - and break it! I'm tellin' ya, it doesn't get any better than that folks!

Verily, in the Land of the Penguin we are all as children. So I guess the answer is an emphatic YES!
