We do have some stuff like that on the main page, although maybe it

should be grouped or labeled as stuff for freshers. There's no real

reason to believe that that your average please-tell- me-a-web- page-

that-will-explain- everything- about-piping fresher will actually read

it, but it's worth a try. Looks to me like we ought to have links

generally on the following

Glossary of piping terms

Tables of pipe and fitting dimensions (maybe bolt ing and sheet metal

gauges)

Materials data

Technical societies

Books

Manufacturers

Software

And we make it a practice to generally reject the explain-me-all-

about-piping posts with a note to check the web site, read everything

and get back to us with any specific questions.

I wonder if Paul could score some ads from schools that teach piping.

That might do everyone some good.
