Hi there;

Let me join the chorus in saying this is a fabulous book - far more bang
for the buck (or in this case per pound of paper smilie than many of the 'in a
nutshell' or similar language books out there today.

Now for the unpleasant bits: When can we expect an update to the Errata
page?

There are some truly significant obstacles to actually using the examples as
the book currently exists, and we're buying severel more copies for folks to
use as they come up to speed with Python - so as things currently stand the
only way to win is to start with the exsting Errata page, read through _all_
the messages on the author feedback forum, and try to integrate the errata
pointed out there.

I realize it's the holidays, and I'm not complaining; Just trying to save
everybody some work so we only have to do this collectively _once_ smilie

Thanks,

-Chris P.
