This was originally to answer some questions for Matt... but I thought there might be a chance that some of you might benefit from the years of scratching and digging I have done.

The following is a list of tutorials and resources I have found to be beneficial in my path to madness...

Some you will have to just click and see what lurks behind the door... MUAHAHAHAHHA....

The following "skills" will make you an amazing asset to any webDesign firm (without a degree/Plan B), BUT, more importantly, it will give you the skills to build anything you could dream up - so you can be your own boss and truck your cash to the bank with a wheel barrel.

This gives you a fast-track path to learning.
