I found another minor error in the (still exceptional) book, but I'm nervous about being flamed for posting it and taking up space on the forum or messing up the wiki.
However, this then poses the question, why is it here if not to communicate and document information including error correction, which may well be useful in writing the forthcoming "DSL 2 - Return of the ping!".?
I see the point in 'saving, then posting "en masse"' but personally I'm glad someone is taking the trouble.
Too many on-line communities create barriers to freedom of speech through feelings vented in black and white, where underlying meanings are not conveyed or mis-understood.
"POST FREELY" I say. Let the moderator make the decision.  In this case, too much info is better than too little.

ps. I hope he is looking at the wiki, it does need some work.  My view as a developer is that the wiki should be for information storage and the forum for communication.

stu :p
