Note* 1. This guide was made by collecting tips from other people documents, tutorials from different forums, sites and etc. 2. I hope I wont offend anyone by using their stuff in my quick guide - my intention was to have a quick and simple pdf document for my personal use, and I decided to share with others for free 3.
