    Would perhaps be quicker to count the APUGgers who don't want a copy of the book.

    So...

    Any chance the most-anticipated photo tech book of the new century will be available to the holiday shopping season (since there wasn't a Ron Mowrey Black Friday Shopping Event assault on my email yesterday)?

    If getting the thing fully finished is perpetually shimmering on the far horizon, perhaps publishing it as it exists and publishing an update addendum might ease the publication process, as well as introduce some (hopefully) useful income earlier in the process. Given the technical, unique and valuable nature of the information you have to share, I know I'd be happy to settle for 90% fabulous. And what if you get hit by a truck tomorrow (as my administrators always tell me)?

    Maybe engineers shouldn't be their own editors (or marketers)

    Sincerely,
    An antsy artist who doesn't like to wait....

    JMA;

    I am doing my best. I've been sitting here for several hours, typing AAMOF. I have been adding the material that readers thought appropriate or that I found I have left out. That is about all I can say. As I type, I flip back and forth to APUG and when really tired, I go to the lab and do more experiments. Right now, I am working on vAg, but the next task is the ultra high speed emulsion.

    I might add, without revealing too much, that my book may be eclipsed totally by another book that is at about the same stage of development as mine, but is going to be a real blockbuster when it arrives.

    So there! I hope that I have whetted a few appetites. The lid has been kept on this other book, but when I saw the draft last week it blew my mind. You are all going to love it and both books will make a handsome addition to anyone's library on photography.

    No other comments now! No questions, nothing. That is all you get from me.

    Jeez!

    It's like having to wait until Christmas Day to open your presents!

    Maybe you'll have to have the cover of your book be in Kodak Yellow to make it stand out!

    Keep plugging away!

    PE,
    That should be illegal! Writing about a "blockbuster" which will "eclipse" your own book. That is beyond a "tease", and is as close to torture as is "waterboarding". I cannot help but start to guess. But I wont make my gueses public because I will probably be wrong. But I can only think of about two things that it could be. That is as long as I stay within the limits of what is "possible".

    I've posted an update in another thread here. I don't have a reference, but it was posted today in answer to a question from Tom Kershaw about learning electronics.

    I'm working on it Bill. Please be patient. I am not a fast writer and have had to do weeks of vAg experiments in the lab in order to complete one chapter. I am waiting for pump tubing at the present time for the next set of experiments. The last batch was not the right type and the correct type is still on order.

    See the other post for more information.
