There were a few technical glitches, but we worked some of those out for the recording and we'll definitely be taking your feedback on things we can improve on for the next webinar.

"Hey Jords, thanks. For small tasks that doesn't take that much resources, it will be under small apps which takes 1 small gear.

"Thanks John... but I cannot even add a discussion here on the Creator's site.  For some reason I am blocked from updating, editing or seeing the edit page.  I am at a loss... I use FireFox.  I checked my firewall settings... no luck."
