I think you're right about the price. Most technical books that size go
for 1/2 to 1/3 the price. OTOH, there may be some extremely advanced
technology involved. With a shipping weight of 0.3 ounces you may be
getting anti-gravity for your money!!!

I think you misclassified it. If I extrapolate from what I recall paying for
college course books a few decades ago[1], it seems quite reasonable for an
academic text book.

[Pokes around Amazon] Yup, my old freshman calculus text, is going for $149,
new.

[1] Was it really that long ago...?

It's been so long I no longer remember what I paid for my college texts!

I was comparing with the prices of some of the computer related books
I've purchased: "sed and awk" Second Edition by Dale Dougherty & Arnold
Robbins, O'Reilly & Associates 406 pages, soft cover $34.95 or "Learning
the Korn Shell" by Bill Rosenblatt, O'Reilly & Associates 336 pages $29.95.

Well, college students have no choice! If they want the course they
must have a copy of the text book. I, OTOH, have a choice and the price
doesn't fit my budget! I would have paid $35 or $40 to see what he
had to say.

We won't go into the fact that I had Prof. Thomas autograph my copy, so still
have it to look at the price ($26). I'd probably have to updated my Geek Code
if I mentioned that. ^U


And you just hit on another reason. Both of those are soft cover. Hardcovers
always cost more than paperbacks.


And his students can probably get it autographed. I'll have to check, but I
think you'd get more Geek Points for an autographed NTP tome vs. Calculus. But
is it more than a doubly autographed, first edition, K&R?

So Prof. Mills, when are the book signings?

Jed,

I regard this a golden opportunity to test remote manipulator products
suitable for Intenet telesigning. Product suggestions would be welcomed.
UPS has it now.

The time is too short to get the "Internet Telesigning Protocol (ITSP)" RFC to
the editor until April 1st I'm afraid. Also the issue of replay attacks is
completely unsolved, unless the book clearly authenicates to the signer. ;-)

Regards,
Ulrich

ITSP is on the IESG's editor's desk but he's out to lunch. It will be
released on April 1st, but it's not clear which year. :)
