Thanks, Keith. I’ll do the trial and see how it goes. Looks like I spoke too soon about the download. It’s running now rather than timing out on “waiting”, so I should be in good shape by tutorial time. See you Monday. =)

Touche Brian, if you are just looking to explore what is new I would recommend the trial. I am not sure what is happening in your situation with the download. Can you try this link and let me know: www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/...

I see where Flash Builder 4.5.1 is listed under “Mandatory”; however, I’m wondering if I will be okay in this lab if I configure the Eclipse IDE as listed under “Free IDE Options”. I’m having problems downloading the Flash Builder trial (it just says “waiting”, then times out and prompts me to retry the download. It also spams me with an email each time, five so far, the “cost of closed-source software,” I guess…).

If I really do need this trial of closed-source software to get the most from this tutorial, I’m wondering if there’s an alternate download site, or if the installer could be posted on the conference site somewhere.
