I find myself procrastinating posting this, so that’s probably a good sign that I should face my fear and get this out the door. =)
I spent a few weeks rereading all of my blog posts and picking my favourites. I cleaned them up, added pictures and updates, and organized them into chapters. Now, for less than the cost of a cup of yummy hot chocolate, you can check out this PDF compilation of the highlights of my past ten years of blog posts.
I designed the PDF for reading on laptops, tablets, and other large screens, but I’ll put together an EPUB version for smaller e-book readers if people want one. Check out the preview to see if it works for you. =)
There are tons of things I can do to tweak this. I might revisit it in August (when I turn 29) and again when I finish my twenties. In the meantime, though, it’s better to share this (warts, potential misunderstandings, and all), fix it up a little, and then start on the next book! I’ve got “101 Things You Can Do With Emacs” bouncing around my brain…
If you do buy it and want to hear about any updates, e-mail me your receipt ([email protected]) and I’ll add you to my list. That way, if I release an update, I can send you a link to the PDF. Enjoy!
