Hmmm, yes - I have rather run out of steam. Mostly, I just don't have the time that I used to. I do have a few half-done bits of examples, so maybe I will just post them as they are instead of waiting until I have time to create a proper .pdf.

Very useful for even an oldtimer like me :)

Sorry but I did find a few minor bugs & suggestions:
Page 11: The closeup links did not match the zoomed out links
Page 14: Did you know there is a 1/x primitive? I'd also per-calcuate 2Pi. They will save both triggers & filesize.

No need to apologise, any constructive criticism is welcome and appreciated - professional publishers run their author's work via a proofreader and editor for good reason. TBH I am quite surprised that there have been so few "bugs" reported!

Do an user search for "infuzion" in the bugs sub-forum, & count ;)

My tip for first timers....

Do NOT read this tutorial on your CPU.
PRINT it out, stick it in a folder, and put it where you go for a smoke break, the back patio,
verandah, front porch.. wherever your own "smoking section" is.
Only takes a minute and a half to smash a smoke, and you don't have to think, Trog's made it
real easy-you can just stare at the pictures-do that 10 or 12 times every day-it really starts to
sink in.

And Trog, I don't wanna put any pressure on-but I am/we are sweating on the arrival of the
next installment. Xmas is coming Santa Claus....what have you got hiding in your bag...? ;)

He he, cheers Billy.
That's partly why I always still do pdf's - I can't stand having to open a web browser just to look at the instruction for something. Bit like those Kindle things - nice idea, but I love to read while I'm having a nice hot bath!

Next installment. Hmmm, we'll have to wait and see. Whatever happens with SM vs. FS, triggers are still going to be important to understand, so I haven't ruled out doing some more work on it.
Or maybe I'll just write half of a Ruby tutorial to annoy the FS users! 3:) :)

That won't be annoying for people like me, who look at ruby and go "wtf".

I don't think many people have baths thesedays Trog. Everytime i mention going home, filling the
bath and pumping it full of "Radox" &"Epson salts", they look at me like I'm an alien. :)
Best thing after a really long day on your feet- but I don't read- I use it to meditate & diss-appear.

Sorry for the confusion - they are not separate parts, the .pdf has everything so far inside - should have wrote maybe 'Version 3'.
