Well, It's nice to get some positive feedback!  As the
others mentioned, there's still more to do.  When I have
more time, I'd like to discuss gitk (and maybe git
gui---although personally I find git gui confusing).  But
I'm glad you're finding the first draft helpful.

Hmm.  What's the error?  What OS and git version are you
using?  On my Linux with git, the command is
shorthand for:

   git log -10 --pretty=oneline --abbrev-commit

Try that instead; hopefully the SHA1 hashes should be 7
instead of 40 digits.  Not a really important thing in the
end, but it's nice to have an error-free learning
experience.  Let me know.

Thanks for the response.
