Subject Re: (frustrated torque first timer) Please update the Tutorial
Date Sat, 20 Aug 2005 14:40:26 GMT

the tutorial has been updated, it should be correct for Torque 3.2-RC1. I 
believe the issues you have raised have been addressed now. If you got the 
time, I'd appreciate it if you could give it another try.

Of course, if anyone else feels like going at it, please do. If something 
is unclear or incorrect, please send a short email to the users list. 
If you have suggestions what could be explained better, cou can also send 
a mail to the users list or use the brand new user comment links at the 
bottom of the pages
