We are also having a debate internally about the relative usefulness of videos & blogging and so my walkthrough is available in three formats
I can easily look at the numbers of hits against each of these links but some comments about what format you prefer to consume technical information would also help.

A very useful and informative post. I am definately subscribing to your feed.
