Is there a higher resolution version of this video? It's very well presented. I really like Issac's presentation style; very professional. Clear and concise, no wasted time, and I find myself falling right into the video. I particularly like that he avoids that cliche so often heard in video tutorials, "Let's go ahead and..." Brilliant stuff. I can't praise it high enough. Two thumbs up, five stars and if there was an Oscar for video tutorials, he'd definitely be on my short list.
