Hello Apress User Group Members,
Wow, it's been quite a month for us here at Apress. To start with, a
shipping company semi truck showed up with 220 boxes of "stuff" that we
acquired from the former Peer Information Group - I'm sure you can
imagine my surprise when the delivery person said "where do you want this
stuff?" Additionally, we've been searching and scouring the servers we
acquired for new and old book files to begin our reprints of the former
best sellers you want and need... I must say, we were very successful -
the first reprint shipped three weeks after the acquisition and is
available now! Anyway, enough blabber, we have a lot of exciting things
happening right now at Apress and I wanted to take a minute to update you
on a few items.
