I would like trying to unite all solitairy manual writers back to ubuntu official wiki pages, as many fragmented howto's confuse new users. All those 'islands of knowlegde' should be one trusted continent.

OerHeks is always around in the Dutch and international IRC channel to help people who have problems with ubuntu. I was surprised to hear that he isn't an official ubuntu member yet, this should be fixed as soon as possible ;). - Redmar (21th nov 2014)
