  1. Good tutorial. Although if I can give one criticism. Don't assume people know what you're talking about. So that means don't just do stuff and say you're doing it. Tell us why you're doing it. Do we have to change our environment variables. If so, why do we have to? Is there another way?

    Good stuff though. This answered a lot of my questions.
