Hey, they got it out just in time to revise it for 2009...   :-D

Congrats, guys!  I know that book took a lot of effort.  Ain't it fun trying to document a moving target like Civil-3D?

I saw a gmail notification on my desktop from Amazon last week and thought "grand, they are finally shipping my book" . . . No such luck - the new expected shipping date is 10/22 - 10/24.  :pissed:

Email notice received overnight that my book has been shipped - about a week earlier than the last estimate.

You are welcome! I'll know it went well, if you have ONE question.  To be clear the AVI is on XDREFS not Data References. Although I do have that one ready, it isn't posted yet.

Apologies . . . yes XDREFS . . . I was trying to eat dinner, arrange some backup files and post via a keyboard balanced on my knees under the desk . . . when it comes to multi-tasking I am more DOS than Windows - perhaps CP/M.

I don't know why I would, considering that at no point in my contact with authors here at The Swamp, they were unable, or unwilling, to actually answer any question I posed of them.  Given that I still find much fresh material in reading the help file, and solving all these real world issues, I don't know that I have time for the recreational reading involved.  Now if on the other hand they had ever been willing, able to assist I might be more inclined, however much of the attitude I saw expressed here http://www.theswamp.org/index.php?topic=16512.msg200716#msg200716 makes me less so. 

To be clear; I am not saying there might not be a nugget or two in there, it just might be a while before it gets on my book of the month club.
Be your Best

I....however much of the attitude I saw expressed here.
I followed that link and could find no 'attitude' that you are talking about. What I did find, and it surprised me, was that James & Dana are no longer members here. :-( Guess that explains why I haven't seen them poking around here for a while.
