The FreeBSD Almanac

I've found a site to put my Almanac on and soon it will be there! I'll update this when I get it up. Thanks for your patience.
Things I hope to do with this almanac soon:
  1. Add information about my porting efforts, especially the ports that have been the most difficult for me.
  2. Add more sites relating to FreeBSD, of course. As of right now, there are approximately 160 links here.
  3. Post some neat shell/perl scripts I've come across or written myself that help enhance the FreeBSD experience. These scripts may or may not be specific to FreeBSD, but they sure will help get around a few deficiencies in certain tools.
  4. Write up some neato script to track porting efforts of programs that have not yet been ported to FreeBSD. It'll probably end up being a lot like Freshmeat, and will get most of its information off Freshmeat too. :-)
  5. Write up a "credits" page since some of the links here were ripped from other people's sites, although 80% of them I stumbled onto myself. ;-)
  6. Write up a document about how to get help the most efficient way. This doc will probably be geared towards long-time Linux users. (which means, I will probably need a lot of help.. ;) Of course, such a doc might somewhat obsolete my entire Almanac, but it will only present the HOWs, not the WHEREs of getting help.
Any suggestions, questions, comments, etc., feel free to send me email.
