Nikon CLS Practical Guide

Today i stumbled upon the wonderful Nikon CLS Practical Guide, a blog by Russ Macdonald that provides a series of detailed, well-written articles on Nikon flashes and Creative Lighting System. Russ' description of his blog is:

I decided to start this blog to capture some of the many Nikon Flash posts I've made on http://Nikonians.org/forums . Of course, the main reason this is needed by the photography world is that Nikon, who makes the world's best Flashes, doesn't do a very good job of documenting them.
Added it to my blogroll: i think it will be a very useful resource for lighting newbies like me.
