Stefan,

Please understand that it's not my intent to be rude; I know you guys
are trying to help and I really appreciate that. However, I'll ask
that you read the very first line of my very first post again. I am
so new at svn and Tortoise that I'm having trouble following the help
you're giving me. Again, not your fault, no intention of being rude
here. It's just that I'm so new, all the terms are unfamiliar, etc.
I realize that you're the project owner for TortoiseSVN, and you
understand this upside down and backwards, but I've only been trying
SVN for a few weeks.

I do have a question related to one of your bulleted points above:

First bullet: "do not update to that revision!" - How can I avoid
updating to the latest revision (which I'm trying to revert) if my WC
is already at that revision? Again, I'm
sure this is just terminology, but I'm confused.

Last bullet "commit" - It wouldn't let me! When I reverted changes
from versions 6 & 7, and then tried to commit, it said there were no
changes to commit! Maybe I'm working through the wrong log here, or
something? When you say "show the log for your working copy " do you
mean rclicking the WC > TortoiseSVN, Show Log? Or there another log
I'm supposed to be looking at.

Again, I've got thing up and running now. This is just for the next
time I have to revert to an older revision.

Thanks for your help.
