Project files don't match where Guil starts

I'm confused already. I've downloaded the project files and Guil has removed much of the CSS from his video. My Media Queries section still has the max-width bits in despite him starting off by creating a min-width query. How come these files are so out of sync with the video already?

Hmmm...it may be because he is expecting you to follow along and type the code yourself. But I haven't downloaded exercise files from here before, so I don't know why, you may have to contact the staff about that.

Thanks. I think I was getting a bit ahead of myself. I do find that he goes a little too quickly sometimes so I was getting confused. I think the point he was trying to make was that the original "starting" style sheet was wrong and we needed to work to fix it and make it more "mobile first". Basically we ended up re-writing it so it was better.

Thanks for your answer :)

I've found that the downloads have not been matching well for most of these. I think the initial CSS should match where the last lesson left off, but they don't. I follow along and make the changes, but it's confusing when you have to keep pausing the video to update the CSS to get it to where it needs to be, in order to follow along.

I am in the same situation, Juan. I learn best by watching someone do a task, which is half the reason I decided to pay for TTH. Before these lessons (starting at 2.2), I had no issues. These last few lessons have also thrown me off at times. I can still work backwards from "finish" file but it is less constructive and all the work has already been done.

Probably a quick fix for staff. These seem to be quite important lessons, so hopefully it will be taken care of!
