Praise: Rev Documentation to the rescue

That is exactly the way the Director list serve is. Those who really 
know don't pass on what they learned and it is rather 'stuffy'. That is 
one reason why I abandoned Director in the end. The other was that 
every Director project 'looks' and 'feels' exactly the same, I mean you 
can tell a mile away if something was done in Director. I just didn't 
like that for the prototype work that I do. Where as this list and 
Rev's standalones are extremely fantastic.

I am hoping that Borders Book stores also end up with a whole book 
shelf full of Transcript/Revolution stuff.

P.S. Speaking of loving Rev and the people on this list, I want another 
Rev T-Shirt and Coffee Mug, I used mine everyday and, well, I spilled 
my coffee mug on the T-shirt and well now it's stained through. Anyone 
know if they will appear again???
