I guess, I should come in with some comments. First of all, thank you for translating this - the work is indeed awesome, as are some alterations, like in the beginning, where "the user facepalms may merge into applause" - I like the expression a whole lot.
And yes, this guide is written in a hopefully amusing manner, since if the lectures of my engineering course taught me something, it's that a concept or lesson attached to some joke, interesting fact, amusing story or something similarly remarkable is far more likely to be remembered than one plainly stated, and that ridiculing the common mistakes and pitfalls is the best way to get people to avoid them.
In a small edit, I decided to change the joke in title of section 4.1 from the english original (where it was a string of malapropisms referring to an old slovak joke) to a reference to the character of Nikifor Ljapis from "Twelve Chairs" who was laughed at by colleagues for constantly committing exactly this sort of error - terminology revealing utter lack of knowledge about the subject. (I'm curious, did "стрелка осциллографа" actually appear in an article? I laughed for five minutes straight upon reading it.)
