  1. This was very useful and informative, thank you for taking the time to do this. It has given me ideas to take a different direction from what I was first thinking. Well worth the 40 minutes!

  2. Hi Sudidi,

    Good to hear you found the video useful. Indeed, most likely you make your own version, and pick up what is applicable and not. I was thinking about a part 2 of the video, but it will take a month or two. In case you have idea's for part 2, it's always welcome.
