Reward Points Module

I tried implementing the reward points from phparch book and it doesn’ work.
I need to do something similar, but I can’t find help on the forums, wiki, or anywhere else.

I’m also trying to do this via modules and not altering core.

Broken down:
1.) Assign a value to products.
2.) Accumulate that value when product orders are complete.
3.) Add a link on the dashboard menu and a page to show them their points.

Specific questions:
1.) Which event do I need to subscribe to in order to capture order?  How in my config.xml can I subscribe to it.
2.) Whats the best strategy for altering the customers dashboard w/o breaking upgradeability?  Where does the design for this reside?  How do I set up config.xml to implement this?

Hope this is clear and not a jumbled mess.  The reward pionts module from the book was near perfect except it added the points values on the main dashboard page and not as a menu link, and it just didn’t work when I implemented it.
