  1. Nice.
    As I browsed through it I noticed some differences although they appear to be the same version according to the information on page 4 in the pdf.
    Starts on page 3, the blue one, the new one has “and Howard W. Sams & Co., Inc.” on the page and is missing the “i” at the bottom. Number is gone on the next blue page as well. Appendices-page is only a square of blue. Someone was obviously drunk when handling page 387 and 407, looks like Xerox copies from 1983.
    A bunch of headers are black instead of blue and from a personal view I’m not sure I like the extreme contrast fax-machine-like jagged letters on the new one compared to the soft fuzzy edges on the large old one – but I’m impressed by the amount of space you have – so I guess you have to save some at some time – I assume it’s not infinite. 😉

    It’s nice that it includes the schematic, even if there are some errors (that is in the original, not due to scanning).

    Not bad, I’m sure it will be well received.

    • Thanks for the report, the specific issues have been adressed, if you can get back to me which headers that are black that should be blue, i’ll fix these as well.
      I’ll make a new release as soon as you can supply these pagenumbers (unfortunately my own time is quite limited these days, so I don’t have time to flip through each pages).

      And no, not drunk, just trusting the applications too much.

      The jagged edges of the 3 color pages only won’t be seen if you don’t zoom in to see the pixels, and if you print it out you won’t see them either. On the other hand the 3 colors are the same throughout the book, whereas the old one the blue differs quite a lot 🙂
