    Thanks Douglas!

    Btw, we have a lot more photos to add and more modules. The final step will be to add the quizzes and tests.

    We opened this up to the PG community at the Ruckus because this community is the best focus group in the world. In each lecture there is a place to post notes at the bottom. We want as many comments, suggestions and discovered typos as possible.

    The full announcement is coming soon. There is more

    There is one. It's part 5.3, but it hasn't been finished and published yet.

    A pearly course- what fun!

    Are you all just requesting general comments or also nitpicky line-by-line editing suggestions?

    Okay, but please ignore me if I get carried away! (Since becoming a semi-pro-ish wannabe writer, I seem unable to read anything any more without wanting to add my own little nips and tucks).

    I'm looking forward to taking this course, too. I was excited when it was announced at Ruckus by Jeremy and Kevin. I'm still too sleepy after my long late flight to take a look yet. I want to be wide awake for it.

    Woot! I literally JUST completed the course! What an amazingly well done syllabus. Thank you Caitlin, Kevin, Jeremy and everyone else who has worked on and contributed to the course!

    I was in my lounging around tank, and of course had to wear pearls as I was going through the course. Purranha decided she needs to partake in the course with mommy. I swear I did not stage her for the photos whatsoever!!! She climbed on my tummy and placed her little chin on the computer as we went through the course together. So of course I had to let her wear a strand of my pearls.

    How long does it take to complete the course? I really wanna do it but it's hard to find a proper block of time and I want to make sure I'm not interrupted when I'm doing the course.

    It was a couple of hours but I'm a pretty slow reader. Wish I timed it!

    IcyJ - It's easy to do it in blocks as you can just read a section at a time. By stopping and starting you don't really 'interrupt' the flow of information. It doesn't take long really..but there weren't any quizzes attached when I read it..I've not looked since.

    Purrhana, that Tahitian strand looks like it was specially chosen for that gorgeous cat. Er, it wasn't, right?
