Online Training Courses from Lynda.com

I just started taking some courses from Lynda.com (for about 4 months now) and I'm really enjoying them. They have some really great instructors and some really good courses. I've been using Adobe Photoshop more seriously for a couple of years now and recently bought CS4. Deke McClelland of deke.com is my absolute favorite teacher of all time. He has a great sense of humor and an un-matched working knowledge of the software. He is the ultimate mask-master.

I have been taking notes in order to try to retain all I've been learning and I know that will help (I've already gone back to some of them at need).

Some of my favorites so far are:

CS2 Channels and Masks - Deke (before I bought CS4)
Photoshop CS4 One-on-One: Fundamentals - Deke (long but awesome - have yet to get into parts 2 and 3)
Photoshop CS4 for Photographers: Camera Raw - Chris Orwig
Photoshop CS4 for Photographers: Creative Color - Chris Orwig
Photoshop CS4: Blend Mode Magic - Michael Ninness
CSS Web Site Design - Eric Meyer
Drupal 6: Online Presentation of Data - Tom Geller

This is not a comprehensive list ... just a few of my favorites so far. I highly recommend the training. The only peeves I could mention would be that they sent me my chosen password via e-mail and every once in a great while (twice actually over the 4 months I've been a member) there is some type of server issue but it is always resolved quickly (more of a kudos than a peeve I suppose).
