After receiving multiple requests for some seminars and publications, several are now available for download. For items with a hyperlink, right click and choose "Save Target As..." or the equivalent for your browser.

Please note that several of the downloads are in Microsoft PowerPoint slide show format that is password protected against changes (not viewing). This format may only work on PowerPoint in a Windows environment. Some versions of Powerpoint for Mac can not able to handle the difference between a presentation that is protected against changes and a presentation that needs a password to be viewed. Embedded Power Labs apologizes for any inconvenience but this is a known Microsoft issue.
