Just a few days late (as usual it seems around here for me, and my apologies).

The winners are Brian Maxwell (contributed off the forum) and Ssmmbfcs. Congrats! You both will hear from me via email to set up the shipping of the books.

Stay tuned for another drawing - If I can get it listed in the next few days, it will be for the month of June, so keep your fingers crossed I find more time away from the day job(s)!

Anyway, I ordered 2 copies by phone at the same time and I ended up with copies 38 and 14. Go figure! The allocation of the numbers all seems a little random.


To be honest, it might well be as simple as the way the books are stacked in the warehouse for picking. This coupled with the multiplexing of the phone orders and web orders into the invoicing/order picking system would probably result in something approximating sequential allocation ( becoming more accurate as the number of orders falls off). I imagine doing anything more accurate would simply be more effort than it is worth (and no one ever claimed to be allocating sequentially this time around, anyway).

I've only seen one mention of a number over 50 so far.

My copies arrived just today. Dont know why it took so long (to Ireland). Very impressed with the packing.

Have not had time to open up and examine, but looking forward to doing that later.

Well, I suppose that crow should on my lunch menu today. To my surprise, HC replied in just over one hour with the following:

Dear Sir,

I am in receipt of your e-mail regarding the DHL post charge showing on your invoice.

In regards to the incorrect charge of £7.44, please disregard this item I can reassure you that your credit card has not been charged this . This is an internal oversight which has now been corrected.

Sorry for any inconvenience

Kind regards


Anyway, I got my book within their stated delivery time, well packaged and as described. That is all that can be expected (and it is appreciated). In the future, I will certainly afford them the benefit of the doubt.
