Thank you all for the suggestions. I have bookmarked those sites and will check them out today after work!
I will also definitely be reading the manual and frequenting these forums. I can't wait to have nice photos to share with you all.
For other newbies looking for some good online learning resources, I have found a few nice tutorials over at http://www.photoxels.com/digital-pho...tutorials.html
- their site is very ad-heavy and annoying, but the quality of their tutorials is pretty good.
