    I have started making some tutorials for the Nutcracker.


    This first one is an Introduction to the Nutcracker and creating a login.


    The next couple will be of much mor euse.


    Tutoial #1, Introduction to Nutcracker: http://meighan.net/nutcracker/tutorials/tutorial1.swf

    Tutorial #2 Nutcracker 3 https://vimeo.com/60808806


    The next one is going tobe about creating the target model. I believe there is going to be some information there that some of you don't know.

    Hi Charles. the issue is your login name was truncated.


    Here is your login name. "
    charlesb@onstagesystems.c".

    I was not thinking people were going to use email addresses. It is expecting names more like smeighan, aussiephil .etc. I should have better error checking, I should let you know if you got a truncated name. The software is still alpha and is missing many of these kind of field checks. I will get them done by end of april/may when the software should go beta.

    You can just go and create another user, create as many as you want. They dont take up any resources. One of the things I dont have is

    the ability to delete old accounts, so let me know if you want me to delete any account you might have.
