    Default GWP's tutorials?

    The XaraXone looks like a dimwitted interns side project now... Holy hell! What happened!?

    Where do I find Gary W. Priester's tutorials? I would like to show my daughter different ways to "bake a vector cake".

    Here's the archive that Barbara and Gary David Bouton created of the XaraXone before I retired several years ago. http://archive.xaraxone.com/

    Thank you, Gary.

    However... The tutorials lead to a 404 when clicked... (No shocker there... grandpa and grandma Button heads screwed up everything.) How are people supposed to find them from the current page... if you we can't even find them from this secret page with a broken link?

    I hope your wife Mary and yourself have been well. I think of you often.

    Nothing to do with anyone else, especially those who gave a lot of time and help over the years participating on this forum

    http://archive.xaraxone.com/html/tutorials.html Takes me right to the tutorials. 1996 - 2010

    Some of the links might be bad, shareware for example. And the early tutorials were done with my very limited ability to create content in HTML.

    I'm going there in Firefox, Windows 10.

    that's true gary - but with some of the links I get for example:

    Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access /tutorials/oct09/ on this server.
    Apache/2.4.10 (Debian) Server at site.xaraxone.com Port 80
    clicking the tutorials links directly seems to give this error... clicking on the breadcrumb links at the top for a given year seems to mostly work including for downloads, but not all - not that I have extensively audited it

    Yeah, I have heard there were issues. It was a tremendous job for Barbara Bouton to archive all that work. I frequently search through the Workbook articles and the Guest Tutorials and most of those are accessible. October 09 does appear to have gone missing.

    I have great admiration for everyone who provided such resource - yourself, GaryB and all those who made tutorials and helped; even did some myself, although they were posted ad-hoc

    The OP implies he is known to you; be that the case or no, there is no cause to go laying blame where it is not due
