    I have to say those are the best tutorials (on that level) that I've come across... as others have mentioned, they get the information across without being too textbook-like, and give you more than just the basics of each subject, which IMO is really very necessary.

    I prefer the ASCII-art to diagrams (it's faster loading and like you said, more simplistic, plus, it gives a copy-paste ability that may in some cases be helpful. Maybe I'm too used to IRC-type places though...).

    I find it relatively smooth-scrolling on linux (FireFox v.1.0.7 on linux-2.6.12-gentoo-r6), but I think it's a good use of the static background.

    That's a very good point. I suppose jpg's will be just as useful though as you can save them.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    Yeah, but you can't edit them too easily.

    .fig files are little easier to edit as you can form shapes, compoents, etc. Aligning the ascii tree is tough too and to do it fast needs a program to generate the text.


    Twenty two images, however, is a little too much for one page. Perhaps Prelude willl need to split the page into two or scale the images very small with links to larger ones. I'm going to send both .fig and .png(I think they compress better than.jpeg's for non-photos) to Prelude. Me and Pinorain should have coordinated our efforts better. For RB trees, Prelude is going to have to choose between the different pictures and maybe use both.

    I'd have to echo that, although it would be interesting to see what jpgs you come up with and if you manage to write an efficient program to generate them though.
