I see so many people here saying "I can't do this, I need a tutorial. Where can I find a tutorial about..."

But, before I start: GOOGLE IS YOUR FRIEND! Don't be afraid to try searching a few different things before you find the result that you need!

Also, I'm not just going to go to Google and pick out the top ten results... these are the sites that I have learned from, and find them particularly useful.
