I personally don't like the idea of keeping it on google docs.

Still a few commands won't be too much of info I think. Might help
especially when one asks for help on some forums, and the help given is
in form of "Open Terminal", and run this command.

Thats not necessary. We actually have 2 computers @ the expo which are
fully loaded with all the stuff required :) so we can do a real live
demo, and we even ask people to use the software themselves.
