Is that supposed to look like a D in that pic. I can kinda see the outline of a P though. Well done will buy.

Congratulations! One giant leap for D. (And probably wasn't a small step for you either.) L. ($10 delivery!? 17-28 business days!?!? Argh....)

I like the title, very strong. And the cover illustration is red enough :-)
I'll probably write a review in my language when possible.

Bye,

What language would that be? Or do you mean your blog?

Great job. Hope to get one soon :) But why is the version in amazon.co.uk that much expensive? 39.99 converted to dollars it becomes 65$. I was thinking about pre-ordering the book so I went to amazon.co.uk (since I live in Portugal it's better to order from around here or it migth get stuck in customs for a few days).

That's just an estimate.

Well, one begets the other. Andrei

When will estimate become an exact value?

Well, one begets the other.

It'll be quite sad if whatever the final multi-threading scheme D2 uses doesn't have a vetting period for the community to give some kind of feedback. As far as I can tell, what we have now is about all we'll get unless something magical happens. (I think the next dmd release will include massive fencing, but I don't think anything else is planned)

Roughly, yea. Most of the ones on my bookshelf range from 300 to 1000 pages.

She did great work on that! I'll certainly purchase a copy when the book is in print. Kind regards, Daniel
