One more thing Larry,
Some of the tutorial files are missing for the Sydney Vislab videos.
However, I find that if I pause the video and look at the network pane as
Peter explains what the operators are there for, I can reconstruct the
network and follow along.
I know that's stating the bleeding obvious but not many other packages allow
that versatility. Great if you are a visual person.
