Please trim your posts! Some people have to pay by the character and
we don't want to pay for what we have already! On top of that it makes
proper bottom posting a real pain.

OK, I think you are correct in these statements. Finding good blender
vids relevant to the version you are running is hard. These vids need
a date posted, user rating and blender version info plus ways to
search out what the user wants in terms of function or video type.
