    Lightbulb Please contribute tutorial links you like..

    Hi ,

    I've been collecting good tutorials links on the web.

    We know there are thousands of links out there, but not all makes us understand quickly soon or to the point.

    Some sites extremely support us with the best clearly understood tutorials;some not.

    So, if you have ones, please share at http://icebergz.biz.ly/www/tuto.htm

    There I listed some links from this coding forums as well as from the web.

    Thank you so much for your valuable info and contribution.

    Since you posted this here, I say "turorials are bad", because they encourage people to search endlessly for a specific answer to whatever obscure combination of things they can imagine (because "it worked last time..."); so they're not actually thinking about the problem(s), but rather, how to 'find' a solution. Now, a tutorial about avoiding tutorial-dependency (which concedes that most all of the information on which tutorials are based can be found in one of a few great big, well organized, detailed references) would be in order, methinks.

    You're kidding, right?

    Resources stickies

    There are resources stickies in several forums teaming with tuts and guides; it is really necessary to go over them once again in here?

    imo for the most part well explained tutorials can be great its jsut when they are badly explained or just plain script with a few lines of comments that holds the problem

    eg my bro got a CDO mailbomber script a couple of years ago, and i have only just decided to make my own CDO script (not mailbomber, norty norty!) since i am running a mail server now as i have finally bought a domain.. anyway.. i thought that since he used CDOSYS in his, i could look at how it worked and write my own.. i couldnt even change a single letter, move the objMessage.From to the line above objMessage.To or anything mindnumbingly simple like that!
    after a while i just looked at the CDO reference on MSDN and made a cdosysvbs.inc (which is pretty much the same as the CDOSYS metadata library) so i could see how everything was linked together in it. A well explained tutorial here would have been amazing, as the msdn resource took a while to sift through (and im a very slow reader)
    i did find one tutorial but it was explaned badly (although in a lot of detail) so it was pretty much useless
