    stackyscraps is working on a tutorial even though she's VERY busy and traveling this weekend (bless her). Here is the thread where she mentions she may get a rough draft tutorial out before Monday.:

    From wikipedia:

    Boolean logic is a complete system for logical operations, used in many systems. It was named after George Boole, who first defined an algebraic system of logic in the mid 19th century. Boolean logic has many applications in electronics, computer hardware and software, and is the basis of all modern digital electronics. In 1938, Claude Shannon showed how electric circuits with relays were a model for Boolean logic. This fact soon proved enormously consequential with the emergence of the electronic computer. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boolean_logic)

    If you've ever used a search engine on your computer and included things like "AND" "NOT" or "OR" in your search field, you've used a Boolean logic function. The wiki article gets a little bogged down in technical speak, but it comes down to thinking of things in SETS or groups. (Remember drawing circles around sets of numbers WAY back in elementary school?)

    Boolean functions allow you to compare those things - like saying "I want everything from set A that is also in set B AND in set C." When you were drawing those circles in school, that was the area the three circles intersected.

    In MTC terms, it's a way to combine the different points that make up the images you're cutting.

    And I've probably just confused everyone even more!
