As my fellow Austin Texas USA SeeSat'ers, Mike McCants and
Rick Kirchhof, can attest, I am one of the newbiest of the
newbies:

   "Hey Mike, look!  There goes a flasher!"
      "That's a plane, Sue."
   "Duh."

Well, ok, maybe that's a bit exaggerated.  A very tiny bit.

The best way to learn something is to try explaining it to
others.  If you've ever taught a class, you know what I mean.

We on UseSat are in the process of writing a FAQ.  This is
a *great* opportunity for you to learn something new -- by 
researching and writing a FAQ section, on a topic about
which you currently know little or nothing.

Ownership of many FAQ sections has already been claimed by
UseSat members, and claims continue to be registered, but
there are still a lot of interesting sections left.  To see
what's currently available, look at the file:

   ftp://ftp.cc.utexas.edu/people/worden/FAQ/Status

and to find out what a particular section topic is, see:

   ftp://ftp.cc.utexas.edu/people/worden/FAQ/Outline

Note, by common convention, a section includes all of its
offspring subsections.

I hope you'll take advantage of this opportunity to learn,
to share your knowledge with the SeeSat community, and to
join us on UseSat in this effort.
