Received the last set of corrections from my copyeditor buddy. We were both shocked at how many “new” errors we found; we can’t figure out how both of us missed so many the first time through. In at least a few cases though, we were suspicious of TeX, the editing software used to create the book. Case in point, searching for the repeated-word phrase, “the the”, in order to find and correct my goof of repeating the word. Even though I had an example on the page right in front of me, the TeX search could not find it. Trying different search filters didn’t work either, so who knows what was going on. Changing the search terms to non-repeated words showed that it was working.

Anyway… the book is on schedule for release next weekend.
