 Updating FreeBSDDiary's Info

I've been using this resource for a while to help get back up-to-speed with BSD after 5+ years of Windows-only work. (It's amazing how quick you can forget your Unix commands, not to mention all the changes since then).

While I find it extremely helpful, I also notice a lot of old 2.x BSD work here which is outdated or just wrong (due to changes in the 3.x tree).

Just a few messages back, a fellow was having some problems with ipf because of old instructions that didn't need to be executed.

I'm not complaining, as it's still a valuable resource, but I'd love to see an "upgrade" team going over the documents and making the appropriate changes to make old dangerous information disappear.

I guess what I'm really saying is; Is anyone doing this right now? If not, I'm up to donate some time to the task.

Anyone else? Comments?
