Great Article. Really focuses on the positive. Finishing your basement is a great idea but don't be fooled into thinking that all you need is a sump pump to protect you.
Too many people I know didn't get wall protection or proper drainage done before finishing and now have paid almost 2 times what the original finished space cost to repair it.
Outside drainage is sometimes not the easiest or quickest way to fix your water problem ether. Depending on what you have for landscaping your collateral damage can be astronomical compared to interior waterproofing.
Whatever you do take moisture and water control seriously before finishing your basement.
Again, great article, I included it here: http://www.pioneerbasement.com/forum/showthre...
