Good idea. Okay, what I'll do is when there's about a CD full - enough to make it worthwhile - 
and enough to have a range of newbie topics covered - I'll make an ISO that has them all on. I 
can also put an autostarting page on it to show how to play them under Windows and/or Linux. 
It's unlikely to be any time before christmas at this rate. I reckon I can churn out about one a 
night if they are fairly short and are easy for me to do.

working through my own list, but if anyone suggests *simple* topics for recording I'll consider
