I think "band-aid" is a good description for what Paul has done. And, like any first aid, it makes its contribution not by curing the patient but by keeping him/her alive long enough for proper medical procedures to be applied. As such, it makes a valuable contribution.

Paul's tutorial will hopefully allow more RO users to get FF working. They will then be more likely to persist with the platform and to contribute money for further FF development. I'd like to think that this will help Peter counter his "apathy" as he sees increased, concrete enthusiasm for what he is doing.

I certainly benefited from earlier advice in getting FF running on my Iyonix so I have to applaud Paul, despite understanding Peter's fundamental concerns.
