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.
