My browser (Firefox/3.5.3 GTB6 in OSX 10.5 )  initiates and  
successfully downloads the file  'graphics_transformations_01.zip'

The stack shows many of the complex operations for transforming  
graphics.
The button scripts are very well written to show the meaning of  
variables and the operations used.

There is a metacard version and a rev version and both are dated 2003.
Very cool demonstration.

Thanks for showing this, Alejandro.
I am sure a friend of mine will love seeing this and do some fancy  
scripting.
