I was looking to the Antaiji's Lotus in the Fire article Taigu pointed to in one of his comments on the sit-a-long ( http://antaiji.dogen-zen.de/eng/200801.shtml ) when I've seen Muho's articles called "What does it take to become a full-fledged Soto-shu priest and is it really worth the whole deal?".
I haven't been around Antaiji's website these last months so I didn't see it yet, and I must say that for they really helped me to understand Sotoshu's ordination hierarchy.
So, if you have some time to spend around these not so important, very japanese, but also part of our "Soto family" things, please jump in :

Don't hesitate to look around, Muho's articles generaly worth the time spent in reading.
