Yes, I've investigated that site; it doesn't seem terribly fruitful. 
Perhaps I'm not clicking the right links?  I'm looking for a few things 
that I don't currently see, like

- Code snippets for all the UNO API language bindings.
   I see a few, for the likes of Java, OOBasic, and ooRexx, but they
   harken back to 2.0 and 1.1 days.  Further, Since the API has multiple
   language bindings, I'm looking for more than just those 3.  For
   instance, I see barely six examples for CPP, six for Python, etc.

- Complete object and method listing.
   One of the things I currently lack is the grander idea of what I can
   do with the API.  Generically I understand that it's a lot, but I
   don't know how to access most of it.

- Complete, self-contained code examples.
   There are above-mentioned code snippets, perhaps, but complete,
   downloadable examples that show off a particular functionality would
   be incredibly useful.

I'm trying to ascertain what resources are available to me while I hack 
away at LO, and "just" those three items would be tremendous.  Do these
