Aeon Timeline

I was listening to Writing Excuses and they mentioned a software program named Aeon Timeline and so I looked it up and they're having a half-price sale at the moment. So I bought and downloaded it and now after playing around with it for a bit, I'm still at the "How the hell do you use this thing?" stage. I'll get there, no doubt, but it's just a bit overwhelming at the moment. This will come in handy, I think, for outlining my SF Epic I have planned.

If anyone has any experience or tips for using this for outlining a novel, please don't hesitate to give me some advice.
