For myself, nearly every useful thing I do with Remind comes from
reading wikis or other similar information repositories. I'm not a real
programmer, and the "typical solutions" posted by those more experienced
than I am tend to work for me with minimal tweaking. I suspect there are
others like myself, for whom accessible information makes the difference
between Remind being extremely useful vs being a somewhat mystifying
experience. Being able to read the man page is not the same as being
able to read the man page _intelligently_, and with the help of Paul
Pelzl, David Skoll, and several others, I've been able to get at least a
step or two closer to understanding what's going on.

So... (A) thanks to those very helpful people, and (B) a stable,
easy-to-find repository of information is a great idea if it doesn't
cost you more time & money than is comfortable - and thanks to you if
you decide to go ahead.
