The mini bootcamp link is not active yet for me.

It's fixed now, it just goes to the thread Nick posted this morning...

In all the years I've been posting to forums I rarely mess up copying and pasting a URL Address into the dialog box when inserting a link or a picture but hey... once in a while it happens and it happened this morning when I made that post.

Besides writing a script for the Flex video we're shooting today I've already made 40 posts, most of them before lunch of which the above is just one...
