Thanks for sharing those thoughts, Joel. Very true stuff. I'm a newbie to Rebol myself, trying to grasp its methods and functions, and I - as many others - have some trouble letting go of a lot of functional and data-centric methodology in order to get a better understanding of the ways of Rebol and focusing on the result instead of the task. I'm pressed in the fact that I *understand* that Rebol is the Right Choice(TM) for many problems I try to solve, yet find myself held back by my maybe simple mind and ability to think a couple of steps ahead. Rebol offers me a lot I need and want, but I can't seem to get into the bare facts of how to do things right. I find the lack of a coding standard both a weakness and a great; it makes it harder for *others* to understand your code, but it really makes it easier for *you* to understand your own code. Now, a concrete question to round off with; does anybody know of any really good tutorials (or somesuch)? I find the original examples from the site fair enough, but they are so simple that they are of little practical value. Does there exsist more advanced examples, books and / or tutorials? Kind regards, Alexander --
