I haven't had much time to look at it yet but it does appear to be detailed and step by step. Kurt has his own style of modelling and it's not difficuilt at all to follow along with.

the "add to cd funtion" is being updated at this time, it will be replaced by an add to dvdr

This is due to the fact that a lot of our tutorials are large in file size. The new fewatures will be in place in the next couple of weeks

Im not sure if this is the right place to say this so I apologize if it is. I took advantage of the special deal a while ago but when I go to download the 1st part I see I have a point deducted.

Is there something im doing wrong or I have I just miss-read the tearms?

Cheers

Hi Tim you are marked as having downloaded the Oliphant Tutorial so you can download it, no points will be taken from you.

According to our records you have the correct number of points remaining on your account, however as your a repeat customer we'd like you to go away happy so I'm adding 2 points to your account on the off chance theres been a mix up somewhere. And i just havent spoted it.

= 34 Points spent + 39 for the discounted Oliphant Tutorial

Total of 73 Points spent

You've signed up twice, once for 50 points and once for 35 for a total of 105 points.

105 - 73 = 32 which is what you have left. well 34 now as i've added extra.

If you have any further problems feel free to send me a PM and I'll do my best to sort them out for you.

So have 2 points on us, if for nothing else than for the time its taken me to look into this for you What probably happened is your points count had become cached by your browser. when you downloaded the first part and went back to the site the page probably refreshed making it look like you'd just used some points.

See how nice i am
David.

I have just started downloading the second tutorial and I have had no points taken so everything seams to be ok.

Thanks for looking for me and thanks for the points
