The "Network Troubleshooting" page that Rubin helped to put together
is pretty awesome. I think it covers a lot of the basic tasks people
can do if they want to troubleshoot why the 'tubes don't work.
Then again, I also know how to debug that stuff myself, so it's hard
for me to see where the documentation is lacking.

What do you think would be good to improve or add upon this
documentation? This is coming from someone that has a week free to
actually do shit about it all. :p
