MAYA TUTORIAL : placing correctly a pole vector with math and python

Hi guys!
I am here to share my last two tutorials for maya.
They are about how to correctly place a polevector in maya in a way that when you create the polevector constraint your chain wont move , also it will be possible to offset the locator and so on.
Everything is done by doing some vector math and using python!
comment and critique are welcome!

how about finding mid point between a and b and then finding the vector between d and b and multiplying with 2 would give the same result?
nice tut

well that will give the same result only in the case the distance between shoulder/elbow and elbow/wrist is the same otherwist the vector you get is not perpendicular to the vector shoulder/wrist

by the way thanks sir
