Why did I bother?

A while back I decided to keep a note book of procedures I found useful or were new to me so I didn't have to rely on my feeble memory. Over the years, this note book grew into quite a wealth of information. I started to worry about loosing it and decided a copy would be wise. An electronic copy was the obvious answer and I decided to make it web based so I could access it wherever I had a browser. At first I was going to keep quiet about the site but changed my mind. I figured if I found it useful, others may too. I hope you do find it useful.
