Thanks, I will.  As I've discussed with you before, I have a tendency to
look, maybe, a little too deeply into some things.
I guess, that's part of my nature. I was never a person, in school, to
accept shortcuts, just on face value.
I'll see you next week.

Clarence is a friend of mine, and I have some additional background on his
needs from his comments at our last local user group meeting.

While studying the DG code may be useful, for the moment I believe all
Clarence needs is more basic info to get started using it.

I did a quick search on Google for "livecode data grid lessons", and found
this as the first hit:

@Clarence:  take a gander through those, and see how well the background
info provided there orients you to using the DG, and how well the
step-by-step instructions are easy to follow.

Let's review your experience in our meeting next Thursday.  Bring your
experiments to the meeting and we can help fill in any gaps in your learning
that may be needed, but the set of tutorials there is so broad that you may
not need any additional help at all.
