The first (quick) iteration of the Tutorials document is available on the DoA website. It contains only a Reinforce tutorial currently, but will be added to in the coming days -- beginning with a grand melee and an OpFire example.

Under Team White's turn 2 there's a mistake:

"That
would be the one with 4 Respect. So, any of Team White’s
characters with Respect 4 or higher may enter. This means
two characters – the one with 6 and the two with 5."

Should be the one with 5.

Also:
"The second 6-er goes to Black, and the 8-er also goes to
Black."

Is a left-over from the previous text, it shouldn't be there at all.


Also early on (Team White's turn 1) there's a use of the word "may."

Is that correct?

What if I have two 9s and someone else highest is an 8.

I bring in one 9.

What do they bring in?

Exactly ...

It's better if you have to bring them in if you can but that you're free to decide in what order you'll bring them in. As written it would be an easy win in this case.. And open up for some disturbing games.

You suggestions are all good, Gene, and I appreciate them because many of the errors or issues I will not catch or notice right now, so your eyes are needed. Bear with us, especially me. The tutorial that is out there exists because I had a free moment from 1:30-2:30 am last night, and I'm not a night owl. The hi-res should be the same but is not, so that's a mistake and not planned.

Haste makes waste... but right now at least haste makes something.

Was easy enough to do with curl.

curl -o whateveryouwanttocallthefile.pdf http://someurl/file.pdf

To download the file in the first place.

curl -z whateveryouwanttocallthefile.pdf -o whateveryouwanttocallthefile.pdf http://someurl/file.pdf

will then check if the file on the webserver is of a later date than the one you have or not and only in those cases download it.

I assume this is what to get in Windows:
http://www.paehl.com/open_source/?CURL_7.30.0
([url]http://curl.haxx.se/dlwiz/?type=bin&os=Win32&flav=-&ver=*[/url]) (wtf bgg?)

What other ways of doing it (I was thinking rsync at first) there is I don't know but that likely works.

I think you could get the data (for instance the date) instead to if you rather wanted it that way.

But of course one could put up that information after the file names.

Could likely script it like see which files is in a directory, list them with last modified date and size and fetch some description of what it is from a name called file.desc or whatever.
