You like it, you really like it!

As you may have noticed on the Index page, this tutorial has had, to date, over 250,000 visitors! Dozens of you have taken the time and effort to let me know what you thought of it, and practically all of it has been praise (I suppose if you didn't like it, you just didn't bother telling me). Here's a sampling:
