I can't help but write back to this thread.

Thank you all so much for your positive feedback, what a great
wedding present :)

I just wanted to leave some links here for those that might not
follow the list and stumble across this thread.

First the book website is: http://runningxen.com/

We have a low traffic readers list:

We have an errata page:

And a lot of other nice resources and information:

Unlike Jeff, I am trying to sell more books ;) But as a co-author
I am passionate about providing as much to the readers (and
potential readers) as possible.

Any and all feedback is much appreciated.
