Thanks for the status update. I started reading the User Guide when I  
first signed up for Rev with 2.7. I quickly abandoned the effort  
because of the deficiencies you mentioned. Most of the things I was  
interested in just weren't included. In the few forays I've made into  
the 3.0 documentation, I had noticed an apparent improvement, but not  
the realization that things are MUCH better. Now that I know they are,  
less time will be spent on my idle efforts to engage myself, and much  
more "learning" the more unique potentialities of Rev.

Glad to hear you got your MacBook back in operation again. All the best,

Joe Wilkins
