Subject Re: New Features and Enhancements video
Date Tue, 30 Jul 2013 19:39:16 GMT
OOPS - double post -

Just to be clear, the zip file I uploaded today contains nothing that
should be considered done - there are lots of issues needing addressed on
each before they are ready for use - well, enough to keep a guy busy for a
week, at least ;)

Please, feel to free to comment on any CHUNK or LOOP file, these are the,
IMO, core artifacts on which all he fun stuff hangs.

Adios
