Considering the amount of trouble I'm having with this, I wouldn't mind 
writing up a wiki (user instead of dev perspective of course), since I 
already plan to do one for the Arch wiki. I do not have an account with 
the pulse wiki currently though. Is it free-for-all to edit/add, or are 
there registration procedures?
