    You will need iTunes to get this lecture series and it's around 10 gigabytes.

    Found on the Alaska Permaculture website https://akpermaculture.ning.com/?xg_source=msg_mes_network, this 36 part course is available free from iTunes through N Carolina State Univ. When you get the iTunes screen, select HS432 Lecture 1 from the "top downloads" menu on the right side of the page. This will bring up a menu with all 36 hour-long lectures.

    Cool, thanks. I'll have to save up some broadband. Will check out the first few vids now though.

    I watched the first one. It's unusual, in that it's a video of a uni lecture, so you have the lecturer talking to the students and they all get named and have to interact (not sure about the privacy issues there). The first vid is mostly that, plus a bit of intro to pc and how it was founded.

    Update! For those of you wishing to download this course but not wanting to mess with iTunes, the administrator on another forum I visit has compressed these videos and is making them available in a .zip file (mp4 format) for any Windows machine (and will work for most of you using Linux also). The first two courses are up now and I'll update this post with URLs for the rest as they become available. Don't wait to get these, I don't know how long he'll be making them available from his server.

    Rather than repost each of these links here, I'm going to provide a link that has each of the 36 lectures in mp4 format compressed into individual .zip files:

    https://www.doomers.us/forum2/index.php/topic,63781.75.html (7th post down on the page)

    Be sure to thank Jock for all of his hard work in making these available in a format more friendly to most than the original iTunes. These files are now small enough that even I can download in a reasonable amount of time. = )

    I think he does the text books in the first episode from memory. I still haven't had time to watch all of them though so there might be others down the track.

    Thanks for the heads up on this course, Bill. And thanks Jock for making them available. I have just watched the first video and plan on going through the whole thing eventually. It's great to have a refresher course and one from a different perspective.
