This tutorial was perfect for my learning level. I've watched many YouTube videos showing completed projects and the step by step instructions on how to build them but I wanted some understanding of the "why" that goes with them rather than just being a monkey that's copying someone else's idea over and over. This tutorial was a great beginning for me and you have my thanks. I believe I even understand the conditions that make a BUD work the way it does. Now I just need to search out more instruction/inspirations on how I would utilize each of these circuits and the why behind it all so that I can reach a point of "oh I need/want to make such and such happen, no problem. Just combine a this and a that and there you go."
Thanks bro, i got to this from the link you posted on my forum fyi.

Also there is something that I can never seem to find, HOW THE NETHER DO PEOPLE GET ALL THIS FRIGGIN REDSTONE FOR THIER CONTRAPTIONS?!?!?!?!?!?!
In survival mode, unless you are really serious in mechanizing your house, building redstone circuits can be difficult. Though redstone appears in sizable veins, I found that a stack of redstone is not enough for most of my planned contraptions (e.g: dry dock, auto furnace, minecart station)-- plus the redstone required for crafting repeaters and torches.
Usually all the contraptions I do are in creative mode.
So to answer your question either they spend tons of time strip mining or deep spelunking, or they just don't.
With limited redstone, it is a good idea to thoroughly plan a creation in creative, because I found that if I jump straight into construction I end up crafting more repeaters than I need (over-crafting I think is THE MOST ANNOYING THING for careless or OCD ridden minecraft players.)
