I appreciate all comments about the site. I received lots of
constructive criticism and helpful advise on ways to improve the site:

Thanks to the following people for their comments:

Thank you! As a relatively new Solaris sysadmin ( just about a year
now),every day I realize more how much I don't know. I do know that I
kind of enjoy it that strange?

I will probably visit your site frequently when I have a Unix question.

I think you have a great start! Wonderful!

My suggestions: the font sizes you choose (particularly on make it impossible for
me to read. (My normal font size is 12 points. So, many of your
items come out as about 6 point)

Consider making it easier to navigate and find information on
your pages. I can't quite figure out how to navigate to find what
I'm looking for. (And, from my own experience, I know how extremely
difficult it can be to lay out information like this in an
orderly manner!)

Keep at it--this will be a fine resource.

Nice going! But a lot of people have rules set up to delete anything
from sun-managers unless it has 'SUMMARY' in the subject line - I know I
do. So I nearly missed your cool resource.
Hi Conner,

Thank you very much for this page. I'm sure it will be
very useful for many of us.

Thanks -- looks like a good list. I'll check it out and let you know,
also and any additional links I have.

Nice to see something free that does not advertise.
