I hope to go through and really explore what each one does, how to use it and show some examples.

It is really annoying to update plugins. Be really careful to update them individually or you can end up with a white screen that never loads, locks you out of admin and you have to either ftp to plugin folder and rename it, then login to plugin menu, then rename it back or go to php database and edit the table directly.

Then you have to manually reactivate all of them and find the offending plugin one by one…. wow…very slow going.
