schestowitz>> Each part can have a unique title and at the end we'll publish an index of all parts.Aug 04 07:19
schestowitz> It does, those are all chapters.Aug 04 07:19
schestowitzExcellent!Aug 04 07:19
schestowitz> This is the new book being worked on. There are about 15 chapters now-- anything I think benefits from rewriting is rewritten, though there are a few chapters borrowed from Techrights (written by me) and Im thinking of adding a CC-licensed article or two of yours, maybe. I dont know if youll want to publish it, Im fed up with apostrophes and boycotting them (not for the first time.) I still use them in code obviously.Aug 04 07:19
schestowitzI always first run search and replace "-- " becoming " -- ". This does not take long, but hyphens need to be consistent in the site for style.Aug 04 07:19
schestowitz> 20 chapters or so is most likely. Ive gone through nearly all the things Ive written and written new chapters as well. Do you know Ive written nearly 100 articles with you? Not much point in trying to get an exact count, but its up there. Paltry compared to tens of thousands of course, but Im happy with it. :)Aug 04 07:19
schestowitzThese can be published days apart.Aug 04 07:19
schestowitz> For various reasons, including this being a review and having articles (sometimes with alternation or addition) Ive already sent you, I didnt think youd want to publish it. The point of sending it was mostly to let you know about it. There is new material, though most of it will be review as far as your stuff goes. With that said, anybody is free to help themselves, its already public. If theres something you do want, you dont Aug 04 07:19
schestowitzhave to ask. Ill let you know the book title later, but you already published the previous edition. This wont have the same name (it does mention the old version on a few occasions.)Aug 04 07:19
schestowitzDon't assume that readers already read everything older. Because of the volume. Some people just read headlines, summaries, then move on.Aug 04 07:19
