Woah, rad to see socalfreenet still kickin'! Haven't checked out the project in.... Probably 5-6 years, if not longer.
Great tutorials. I'm starting to think that it's time to be doing some major work in the pfSense wiki department.
garethevans1986 - Check out using MultiMarkdown (http://fletcherpenney.net/multimarkdown/features/
) to put some of your articles in. It'll render out to both HTML and LaTeX quite nicely, and then you'll be able to have some nice looking handouts while searching for more nodes for the net, and maintain le bloggery.
