Wow, nice work Blake. I haven't watched through them yet, but they
look very comprehensive. I will definitely give them a watch today.
Regarding making them into text for people on low bandwidth, I am not
sure this will be all that helpful since pretty good bandwidth is
actually required to do the GNS merging anyway (due to having many
imagery and topo map layers to deal with) so I am not sure people
would be able to use the instructions anyway. If someone wants to do
this I wouldn't oppose it, I am just warning that we need to consider
if people could make use of the instructions before someone actually
