Volume 1 with CD

I don't know who told you this, but they were just wrong.

As you know, this was RunRev's first attempt at book publishing. There 
was a steep learning curve, complicated by the fact that RR lost its 
main publishing-knowledgeable staffer (Ro Nagey) in the post-MacWorldSF 
changes that had to be made for economic reasons. So there have been 
some slips and delays.

Part of the original deal as I understood it was that RR would prepare 
the CD since they were responsible for the printed book while I was 
responsible for the eBook, which, of course, has all the examples in it 
automagically.

Recently, Kevin and I have been discussing this issue a lot, along with 
other members of the RunRev team. I have agreed to compile all the 
sample apps into one place so that people who bought the printed book 
can download them in one compressed file. I hope to have this done and 
ready for download next week.

While it's clearly too late to *include* a CD with the book, the 
original idea for the CD was to include a version of Rev plus the stuff 
in my book. Since we now have only the samples and book code to 
include, a CD would be overkill in any event.

Stay tuned. This will get fixed.
