Guest Tutorial #81
©2008 Ima Guest
I have to confess to a wandering mind. To wit, while I was admiring Steve Ledger's (sledger) excellent pool balls avatar in the Xtreme Conference, and especially the 8 ball, my mind
zotted off to the phrase, "Behind the 8 ball." Off I went to Google where I connected instantly to a website that explained the origins of this phrase (The Phrase Finder). And one
thing led to another and ultimately to this guest tutorial which Mr. Priester was kind enough to publish, (especially after my rocky start with the drop down menus tutorial). Ack! The
explanation, by the by, is shown on the 8 ball and will be part of this tutorial. But you came here to learn and not to listen to my idle chit chat, so let's get on with it.
