BlenderNewbies author Kernon Dillon has published a compilation DVD of his excellent videotutorials. They offer high-resolution video and better sound quality than the on-line versions. It's priced at $35 - $33.25 if you order before Monday.

For those interested, I've just completed a tutorial compilation DVD-ROM of the BlenderNewbies tutorials!
The disc contains almost all of the free video tutorials that are available at BlenderNewbies (over 14 hours)! The only videos not included are the very small ones, and those that have compatibility issues with the latest Blender releases.
Unlike the online versions, the videos on the Tutorial Compilation disc haven't been scaled-down and compressed for online deliver. Most videos are at their original resolutions of 1024x768 and 800x600 with better sound quality. There are some that were originally recorded at 640x480.
Glitches and technical issues found in some of the online versions have been corrected as well.
All videos are in the popular MOV format that's easily compatible with all platforms that run Blender. And, the contents interface is a simple html document viewable on all platforms.
I've done my best to pack it with as much helpful content as possible so, there are plenty of Bonus items in addition to the BlenderNewbies Tutorials!
During the pre-order period (ENDS October 13th, 2008), you'll be able to receive an additional 5% discount so, be sure to take advantage of that.
This is a terrific resource for learning Blender and in the spirit of the Open Source movement the price has been set to make it affordable for just about anyone interested.
I'm also happy that the DVD-ROM will make the materials available to those that don't have the ability to download the large files.
