    Ill be curious to know what you think. I thought it was helpful, but the shipping module it describes and the code you download do not match and neither actually works. Overall it was decent, I learned a bit, but Im wondering how much is wrong that I learned because of the shipping module. Oh well.. Ill wait to hear your thoughts :)
