It is my intent to test run the class with you as the students if you want to participate.
The goal is to make sure all aspects of the class are ironed out before I make it live for the public.  (i.e. Conference calls, forum, posting to the "contest" pages for evaluation by the group) 

I would like to know if you are going to participate by Friday Nov 7th, so that we can hold a introduction call either this week Friday or next week and get started on the class itself.

As usual thoughts and comments welcome.

BTW there will be no fee for you to participate...
If this has problems you should not have to pay to suffer through them with me...

I would love to do this.
One question already.
How long will you allow for us to get through each section. I just need to plan out my time so I don't take on too many other things. It tends to be a busy time of year.
I am delighted to prioritise this but would really appreciate some sort of time frame.

Really looking forward to it

Well as the class is designed you can take as much time as you like on each week. 
I am simply going to make a weekly Conference call possible and be open to discussing any point in the class. 

I have not changed the names to "Sessions" yet...yet.  But If this works out I would expect you to finish the class in 6-8 weeks total time.  If we get through weeks 1 and 2 fast I might open those up to general use. 

I am afraid of getting over run at first...

We'll have to go slow and see what happens.  All of the weeks are open and available to you so you can work your own pace.

Ok. I'll plan for that time frame. I have already started session 1 and will keep on with that.
Looking forward to the phone calls.

Ok I'm in and started.
First test on the spot the difference.
I'm rubbish at it.
Seriously stuck at it for about 20 minutes and found 8.
Most found in first 10 minutes
After 20 minutes I kept leaving and coming back in the vain hope something would appear.
It didn't.
I got bored more than frustrated, so that's a lesson learnt.
I did find it difficult that the down loaded images could not be enlarged without pixelating.

What else would you like to know

Did you click on the image to open them and then use "save as" for the images?  They should be full sized.  I did make a change to the image link on the page.

BTW it's a mental game...try not to be frustrated...
Let's move this discussion to the 201 forum thread.  It's down in the classes area.
