Hi Everyone, thanks for the welcome!

It's odd, but I thought I had posted a "hello" several hours ago, but I notice it doesn't show. Let's try again (after all, I wouldn't want to miss my chance of winning )

Welcome, and all that.

I would be funny to see you win a copy of your own book

The system automatically rejects the guest author from winning his/her own promotion. It also rejects those ranchers whom are directly involved with running the promotion -- so no chance of me winning either.

Little bit late, but no less sincere: welcome Simon! Hopefully you had a great week here at CodeRanch!

In April 2014 I got an e-mail to ask if I wanted to review the outline of a video course taught by Simon Roberts. I guess it was probably this video course I did review the outline. In the next couple of months I would be asked to tech review the section quizzes and a final exam, but I didn't hear anything back after submitting the outline review, so I was wondering if the video course was maybe cancelled for some reason. Glad to see the video course is finally out there. And it's even better there's a promo here on CodeRanch

Hi Roel, Hmm, don't know what happened there. I saw several reviews, I thought I recalled yours being among them. I was struggling against time, so I must admit that I paid more attention to the input than the kind people providing that input. That's embarrassing, sorry!
