infini, thanks for that. When i click on your link it takes me to a dialog page which says:

"Join us!

Click Yes below if you want to add the unit Analysing skid marks to your list..."

I clicked no assuming it would let me browse the materials, but it looks like you have to click yes.

If I could redirect my internet procrastination to sites like this, I'd be the smartest person in the world in like a month.

storybored, that didn't happen for me as I stumbled straight into the kente cloth videos, hm - could be a browser version situation perhaps?
