TFM's my baby. It's my job to notice.

Simplistic algorithm, but yes, does explain it quite clearly.

No, we're still definitely putting out print editions, just as soon as:
a) we've discovered a decent wiki-to-LaTeX converter (nothing like a
properly typeset book -- am considering wzdd's Texdown, although it will
require some modification to handle MediaWiki syntax) and;
b) someone finishes their HTML chapter that they started ;) as well as the
chapter on Computer Science (Thomas). There's also a planned chapter on
Project Management -- how's that going, Ben?
With the wiki TFM and the converter in place, we could put out a limited
run of print copies annually, or perhaps on demand.
> If so, I have a cover image in mind for this section.
