Why not "Big Dummies Guide to Read Mail When Awake" ;)

What I ment was not "Send me some code, guys".

I was asking for guidelines in what I should do when adding a new
feature. :) 

It could look like this:

"First U do this" 
"and then U do this"
"but watch this and look out for this"

Do you get the idea??

I dont ask for complete code examples, what I asked for is some hints
in finding the right places to add my code. Circle is'nt just 1000 lines
ya' now :)
