Yeah, same here, showed up instantly with allowances for 3 downloads, I believe.

I tend to try not to review products other than give my overall feeling but I will be a bit more specific here:

In my experience, really good magic uses principles that are not "unknown" per se but rather are either uncommon or go unnoticed. An example of relatively recently marketed SIMPLE effects that get (to me) amazing reactions is Indecent from Wayne Houchin or, one I personally like better, Saw from some chap named Sean Fields.

Reading through the effects in 1337 is more of the same. Some really clever thinking taking advantage of the nature of things is what makes these things work. While reading through the notes, some of the time I was like, yeah, I know about that effect in nature, so what? Then, a few seconds later, BLAM!

Clever, clever stuff. Once again, I have only read through it since I am at work at the present but I CAN'T WAIT TO GET HOME!

Thanks a bunch man!

Log back into Sean's site (where PayPal should have sent you when you got done).

Go to My Account.

View your previous order.

On the bottom of the page is "Download Links" which will tell you how many DL's you have remaining.

Click on 1337 Notes PDF and it should pop up on your computer.

PM me if you still can't do it.

I am not affiliated with the site but I had the same problem until I reread this thread, so I understand and am totally willing to help.

Not really sure how you click on previous order when no orders show up. Josh has emailed me once with the same instructions. Hopefully it will all get figured out.

Hmmm, no previous orders huh? Yeah, I cannot help at all. It works exactly as above for me (I went through it as I wrote it and again just now). I am sure Sean will take care of it.

-Carlos

PS- Did you get an email from Sean's Store confirming the order? Mine was titled Order Process and was from Josh Nekrep.

Lol, I'll need more than a few hours, at work, sans any materials, to review it. Besides, before I review, I need to learn, practice, then try it out real world. Sorry!

Sorry to those that are having issues. If you have any concerns regarding your order, email my store manager, Josh Nekrep. His email is on the store page as store owner.

I wish I could be of more help, but this is why I pay him; I am blindingly ignorant when it comes to this stuff.

BUY THESE NOTES!!!!!!!!!!

I"ve read through and tried the some the material with props in hand, and I've got to say, I think Sean is making a huge error by not packaging some of these effects separately to be sold on the market. Each individual item described is worth the asking price of these notes. You're in for a real treat from the moment you read the first page. The writing style is comedic, yet informative. The magic is the stuff of miracles.

My personal favorites are 20 B Low(borrowed, folded, signed bill visibly penetrates the center of a table...NO GIMMICKS) and Aquatic( an extremely visual and relatively easy coin in bottle effect). However Sean has some great peek work for mentalists, that he puts into practice in a routine called Mental Epic.

FU2 seems extremely promising, though I haven't gone through it with cards in hand just yet. There are a couple of routines that aren't for me personally, but can envision playing well for audiences. Excised reads like an effect right out of a David Blaine special, as does Taste-icular. For those into that style of magic, they shouldn't be passed up. And, lastly I think Iced Up will be a great routine for the bar.

All and all, Sean offers a nice variety of material pretty much all facets of magic. I can't wait to see what the lad has up his sleeve for us next.....

My apologies....Sean's offering of an effect utilizing his terrific billet peek is called Ultimate Epic, BASED on Mental Epic.

I unreservedly would recommend these notes. For me the coin in water bottle was worth the price. The rest is gravy. And I think the peek would make Richard Busch smile. Quality thinking. Great routines. A refreshing writing style that had me laughing out loud. He writes like he's chatting with you while you're both drinking a couple of beers.

Whenever I buy ebooks or lecture notes I usually only like 1 or 2 effects from the book and hardly ever use them. Not with these notes though. I got a chance to read through them yesterday and started playing around with some of the effects and love it. Every effect in these notes is well thought out and are not to hard to perform. If you have read the description of the notes you can see that theres something for everyone in these notes. Anyone who is hestitant about buying these should go ahead and make the purchase. You wont be dissapointed. Great job sean.

P.S I just wanted to comment on the awesome service. When I bought my notes I had some problems with my paypal and getting the notes but Sean and his store manager Josh got back to me real quick and had everything worked out. Awesome job guys.

P.S.S Go buy these notes!!!

I'm trying to get a refund. I reformatted my computer and since then my computer has been being stupid. I can't open the pdf file. I've download the latest version of adobe acrobat. I seriously hope I can get a refund.

These notes have some of the best material I have seen in a long time. They are just the type of effects I have been looking for (besides the necklace coming out of your stomach)!
