Not if these tutorials have been published but will show again, in my opinion are the best I've seen so far, well explained and simple.

For anyone interested in rigging, the excellent DVD from Nathan Vegdahl was released under Creative Commons:

Wrote a small script for autosaving textures:

Code: (autosave_textures.py)
def func():
    import bpy
    for i in range(0,len(bpy.data.images)):
        img = bpy.data.images[i];
        if img.is_dirty:
            img.pack(True);

def start_timer():
    from threading import Timer
    t = Timer(1, start_timer)
    t.start()
    func()

start_timer()

you can place it in the scripts/startup directory

still have to save the file to keep the changes
it technically packing but I dunno how to explain difference  Shrug

Packing is when you put a resource (like an image file) in the blend file. However, I think if you don't save your changes to the image in Blender, then they'll be lost.

Nice little script.

packing seems to do the trick

Added project autosaving, probably not for everyone but it works for me.  probably effects performance but I haven't noticed it on my desktop, saves every minute instead of second.

Code:
def func():
    import bpy
    if bpy.data.filepath != '':
        bpy.ops.wm.save_mainfile();
    for i in range(0,len(bpy.data.images)):
        img = bpy.data.images[i];
        if img.is_dirty:
            img.pack(True);
            print(img.name);

 
def my_timer():
    from threading import Timer
    t = Timer(60, my_timer)
    t.start()
    func()

my_timer()
