This tutorial is our minor attempt to repay the general Internet
community for all of the free software such as Linux, MySQL, Perl and
PHP that we use on a day to day basis. By adding our two cents worth
to the global bookshelf of knowledge that is the World Wide Web, we
hope to keep the ball rolling. We also encourage everybody else to
add their knowledge to the pile as well.
Many thanks to all of the Open Source developers out there.
