  1. Liked the DPK course but there seemed to be something missing in the VirtualBox PeopleSoft Image DPK demo video, the time listed was 7:53 but the video was only around 1:17 (also seemed to cut short the demo of the VirtualBox) . . . also have a question being a first time viewer of your courses, do you write backwards on the glass for the notes or is this a trick of the camera mirroring the writing?

  2. I think if you scroll down you will find multiple videos on several of the course pages. I missed that at first too and had to go back to watch them.
