Stability coming soon

I arrived in Japan a few weeks ago and will finally be moving into an actual house (well, apartment really) this week. I've been staying in a hotel since I arrived, which is why I haven't had a chance to make any significant additions to the book distribution.

Once I get settled, I plan on creating a web page so people who don't want to bother with Bittorrent can download the book directly. Plus, it will let me create different versions of the book, such as the standard PDF, HTML, ODF, DOC, etc.

If there is a particular format you would like, post it in the comments and I will see what I can do.

I will also be looking at setting up a print-on-demand service for those readers who would like to buy a print version of the book. More to follow.

Revised draft available

I have updated the torrent file that is current available. It was brought to my attention there were many errors when the sample programs were ran, and some confusion within the book itself.

I have changed the included sample programs so both Python 2.x and Python 3 versions are available. I have also modified Chapter 4 of the book to explain that Python 2.x is used for all the examples within the book. Hopefully this will reduce reader confusion.

If you find any problems or have suggestions, please let me know.

Thanks.

Torrent file available

I have posted the book to The Pirate Bay as a torrent file (the most recent torrent can always be found in the sidebar on the left). I have not yet uploaded it to a web site; I am moving to Japan and simply don't have the time to make a site.

Since Blogger doesn't allow normal file uploads, the only alternative is to try and find a file hosting system or make a web site. I think web site would be more appropriate. I'm also waiting for editoral review of the book before posting the final version.

So, if you want to view the final draft, grab the torrent. Otherwise it will be a few weeks before I will be able to post the book to the web; I will look into a file hosting service in the meantime.
