             After all the arguing about doing homework, I've made up a list of

very basic links for newbies. It will eventually appear on the first

page of the Piping Design Web site under the heading of Basic Intro

or something. The idea is for a moderator to refer to the link when

rejecting a 'cn u explain piping' post. Most of this stuff is common

knowledge to anyone with a few years experience in the biz, although

useful to anyone. If anyone has a favorite link with *elementary*

materials, I'd be grateful to hear from you. I'd especially like

links from experienced designers and engineers for educational or

training classes. I'd also be grateful if everyone would try the

links to make sure they work for everyone.
