This course (unlike others) has been a struggle to get through with all of the "We'll get to that later" concepts not explained until after used, the lack of editing of the lectures where the instructor is repeating himself and video was not edited, And now that I am on the "Templates" lecture when we try the "fairly radical" task of replacing our original objects directory (what we have been building on) with a downloaded .gz file from the course downloads. This file "objects-tar_1487129646.gz" that I have downloaded via wget to my linux labserver does not appear to be a valid gzip file and I can not uncompress it to replace my objects folder with this new one to continue with the course:
[root@jparrish77131 etc]# gunzip objects-tar_1487129646.gz
gzip: objects-tar_1487129646.gz: not in gzip format
[root@jparrish77131 etc]# file objects-tar_1487129646.gz
objects-tar_1487129646.gz: HTML document, ASCII text, with very long lines
Can someone please review this course as a whole but more importantly I am stuck at the "Templates" lecture not able to extract the .tar file from the downloaded course notes. I don't think the file that is there now is the same file the lecture references. Please advise since I am not at a stand still with this course.
