Sean,

THANKS much for the tutorials.  Very clear and I now see how the process works.  Hoping to get some hardware soon to see what a lit light looks like!

I am aware that the first tutorial now gives this error message.
"This content is currently unavailable. Please contact the content owner for more information."


Jing offered to put the swf's on their website for free. Fine print was only for 2gb of bandwidth. Well, we reached that 2gb in about one day. Tutorials 2-6 are on meighan.net where i have 1 terra byte of bandwidth per month. I am going to re-record tutorial 1 and move it to meighan.net and then #1 it will come back on line.

sorry for the inconvenience.

I have yet to dive into what you are doing here, but I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to do all this.
 It is people like you that make this blinky flashy community great.
My hat's off to you.  <res.
