To all those who have been so patiently waiting: thank you for coming back. As you can see, another tutorial has been posted, and more are on their way. I've not yet finished my dissertation, but I'm making substantial progress, and in a few months I'll finally be a free man!
In the mean time, as I'm coming back to this blog, I've decided it's in desperate need of an interface overhaul. So I'm posing a question to my readers: what would you like to see in the interface? How would you like to have the tutorials presented so as to make them more accessible?
I will likely go back through the past tutorials and clean things up, clarify specifics, and generally improve the quality of information in them as well as bring back some consistency in style and presentation. What else can I do to help this community effectively?
