You might be noticing a lot of hits on your sites from all the people I am telling - HEY! look at what we are going to greet our new Joomla! v 1.5 community members with. It goes with the Quick Start guide you printed the other day.

Then, people say things like this:  :o

Have you showed Kevin, yet? You need to find Kevin!  :pop

haha... I feel special! Let me know if I can help out at all MiCCAS!

If you don't mind the suggestions, I noticed a few things on my first look-over. If these are difficult to change, don't worry about it.

1) On the XAMPP video, extend slide 6, 7, and 19. I had trouble reading the slides before they disappeared. Not a big deal, but something to consider if you are able to go back and adjust those
2) On the installer video, the phpmyadmin slide isn't necessary on an XAMPP install - the "root" username already has the ability to create databases, so we don't really need to do that first.

Overall though, what you have right now is STUNNING!! Great work! I can't wait to see more  :D

Thanks for the comments Kevin, those things are easily fixed. I'll update the videos very soon :)

Thanks for the comments Amy, I'm glad this is turning out so well. But I'll tell you this, it's very hard to match Kevin's amazing high standards in his tutorial!

I wasn't sure about number 2, so I just went with it. That is a simple thing to fix anyway.

Ok, I'm reuploading the Joomla Installer one, and have removed the phpmyadmin parts as you suggested. Make sure you clear your cache when you visit the site (should be uploaded 5 minutes from this post being posted).

I will edit the XAMPP one now.

Added another video, I'm getting a bit tired so I'll do more videos tomorrow. Let me know what you think, if I should scrap it or if there are some changes to be made. I will complete the changes later tonight or tomorrow

HAHAHA I know, when I was recording the video I knew what to do, then I'm at it and I'm like oh now I have no idea what to right.. so I sort of made it up as I went along :)

And sure you can have the desktop, I thought it looked bland with just a blue background so here it is: http://i4.[removed].com/6po7yva.png

By the way - this thought just came to mind. If you haven't already gone to all the trouble of entering a bunch of articles for video purposes, would you like a copy of the database from this project?

Next video is being uploaded now!

Yeah you used too much bandwidth.. just kidding.

It's still up here, I just uploaded the new video: http://www.miccas.net/dev/jquickstart/users.html

If you still can't get to it, go to start run, type cmd and press enter. Type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter
close that and try again.

Only thing of note in users is that on slide 60, you spelled page "apge." Still great work!

BTW: Amy, would you please send someone after task 53!

Thanks for fixing that...

And task 53 is the one that i'm currently working on... documentation for CSS rounded corners. I have a question that's keeping me from working, and my topic hasn't been looked at yet. I'm thinking that my task may not have someone assigned to look at it... so I'm being a pest... haha

Haha, that's cool :P

What's the next video.. hmm.. ah, News Feeds.. that's an easy one :) Menu will be the largest I think, Templates will be easy. I might do News Feeds today, record Menu today then edit it tomorrow.. we'll see :)

So everything's ok so far? The videos are satisfactory? And more so to Kevin, are you happy with the way they represent your guide?

For me, I love what you have done, and thing they represent the guide well. Not being the one setting the quality standards, I won't try to answer that one - but I personally am very impressed!

Also just watched the last two videos, which are also great. My only suggestion would be on the links video. While "firstly" is an OK word, removing it would sound more professional. That is on slide nine.

Hey Guys,

Sorry for being a bit inactive over the last couple of days, been very busy.

I'm uploading the Menu tutorial video now, and will try and get the other two videos done tonight.
