Re: Minor discrepancies in tutorial.

but it definitely sounds like your project was particularly messed up, so I'd be curious, if you have a moment, to know if trashing it and creating a fresh one helped at all. Yup, still scrambled the same way. (Except that it started me on Page 2 "Switching headers", instead of Page 18 li...

Re: End of free trial
