Reading the docs makes little sense without real examples. Only when I 
understand how it works can I find relevance in the docs. I am not 
asking everyone to work this way but it is the way I work and I have 
found I make progress using this approach.  Google is your friend. I am 
happy to share my knowledge without first asking if someone has read the 
manual back to back or for that matter even opened it. The aim, for me, 
is to get people to contribution and to make progress. I quick google of 
bibble_235 drupal will show I also contribute as well.
