As old as this tutorial is, for a newcomer wanting to get up to speed on using Javascript inside a pdf document, it is very useful. 
the usefulness, however, is entirely dependent upon having access to the pdf document that the speaker was using for his presentation.  If you made the document available, a conscientious person could use it and the tutorial to get a lot of answers to a log of questions that are otherwise never getting to you, or are getting to you and wasting your time.

May we please have the tutorial materials?  The speaker makes a living supporting your technology, but he says that he is prohibited from making his copy of the document available!!!

Hi Don,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I’ve asked our webmaster to take a look at the issue. Please check back in a few days and try again.

Sorry, I couldn’t get the presentation to play.  Might the link be broken?
