    Absolutely a total waste of money and time. (At least the version I got) Pay shipping and you can have my copy free of charge. I learned NOTHING except how to spit, click and say, "Blah, Blah, Blah." like the instructor. A 1 STAR rating is

    I purchased this Video, It was beautifully packaged.
    I don't know if my copy was a draft of the final product or what but it was horrendous. Much of the instruction narrarted ny the author; Barrie M. North, was this ... "Blah, Blah, Blah!, (spitting, raspberries, clicks and local colloquilizms ..."
    It appeares to me that whoever produced this video was to go back and edit those noises with real dialogue, but it didn't happen.
    I didn't know 'anything' about Joomla! 1.5 at the time I made my purchase and I learned nothing from this video. It was awful! Unintelligable, and rediculious. At best juvenile.
    What a total waste of time. A blank DVD would have been a better bargain. At least I could have recorded something over it. What the ?
    If anyone would like to purchase my copy, I'll give it to you FREE if you pay the shipping.
    If Barrie M. North wants to make this rip off right, I'll recant.
    DO NOT BUY THIS VIDEO.
