That's a good example of a point I didn't make last time...

Official sites like NIST usually don't do a good job of linking out to other 
sites.  When they do, they often go to official or manufacturers sites rather 
than informal/amateur sites.

That's not bad, but it might not help newbies find places like time-nuts when 
they are trying to get started.


I should have mentioned that there is nothing wrong with having multiple 
FAQ/Wiki sites run by amateurs.  The trick is that they usually cross-link to 
each other.  If google (or dumb luck) takes you to one, that usually helps 
you find the others.
