Yes, that's completely agreed. While maybe not a fatter /start (which is 
after all more a place to show off mod_perl's conciseness than try to each 
something), beginners like tutorials that take you through mod_perl one 
step at a time, a little like what you post regularly to other sites 
(although I know, you just arrange the guide slightly, but it's still more 

Which brings me to another point: we badly need Take23 or another site like 
it. I am pretty anoyed right now because I feel that such a site would have 
so much potential for the mod_perl community. I tried contacting Matt about 
it, but after an "Ack. I'll set up a plan" reply, I haven't heard anything 
from him for one month or more. I understand he's busy, so I don't want to 
disturb him, but right now Take23 does more harm than good. What do you 
people think? There are so many potential tutorials/articles to be written 
on mod_perl, which don't fit into the mod_perl site.
