Where can I go to sign up for a course? Where is the starting line?

I didn't see the specifics so I could try this myself.

      "Rude" is in the context of your feelings to my comment, but I do not cause your feelings.
      • Aug 1 2012: Sir, you are incorrect. Rude is what you were. My feelings has nothing to do with your actions. My feelings are a separate entity than what was factually done and said.
      • Aug 1 2012: If you don't want your online text to come across as rude but more so jovial, I suggest you learn how to rephrase your wording for future clarification if you choose to continue to communicate behind a computer screen without facial expression and vocal tone.
      • Aug 1 2012: Please don't make it my problem that you are unaware how to communicate with others.
        Quote anything you like, you still chose phrasing that made you look a certain way.
        When stating something, if the other person doesn't understand the point you're trying to put across, the problem lies with you, not them.
      • Aug 1 2012: And let's have 3 cheers for making assumptions. You have no idea what I do or do not intend on doing with this information or these links. SO how about you take your snide, know-it-all, poor excuse for a so-called human self and mind yourself.

      Aug 1 2012: "Much ado about nothing."
      It least my comments didn't revert to name calling.
      And you did not answer the question. What did you search for?

      You must be new to TED.
