This video needs updating

This video leads to a lot of problems.

The user cannot demo what Andrew is talking about due many reasons including the file that students do not have readily available.

I think treehouse should consider re-doing this video to make it more easy to beginners to follow along.

I agree with both Trevor and Jonathan. This has been a major issue for me as well. I am brand new to programming and simply don't understand this section. A large portion of that is due to the inability to follow along with Andrew. I am thinking about leaving Treehouse because of this. How can I learn if I can't follow along?
