Sorry about that. I know I can be harsh sometimes. I hope people have
the energy to let me know if I'm out of line.

Learning from peers is really nice. My point was that there are very
good communities, much better than coreboot, for learning C. I know
of the newsgroup and the ##c IRC channel on freenode, they both have
FAQs and a wealth of other information already structured to help

I do have a passion for teaching whatever little I think I know, but
I believe it is important for each forum to keep it's focus.
