Looks like I'm on track then for Saturday. Probably a little longer because I'm midwest. But excited. Did it come USPS or UPS

So maybe I won't get a confirmation email either. I got one saying that they all shipped. I guess that's what everyone is talking about.

I hope so because I still haven't received the e-mail yet.
Jesus Christ himself* comes down amidst a choir of 2 billion angels singing Handel's Hallelujah chorus. As KrotchRaut shred randomly on guitars made of dragon bones using picks made from God's kidney stones, Jesus heals a blind woman who promptly gives birth onstage to a creation of pure light.

*Yes, Jesus Christ himself. Nothing less will do.

Funny, because my Black Clouds box set came a few days before the album was out.

The post guy is driving up the street now! I hope I get it. It will be awhile before he gets to mine though.

Congrats Nick! Limited or Classic?

Classic. Limited was just too much money considering I have the first edition.

Now that I've been able to re-read Chapter 1 and start the book once again I must give another thank you to Rich for the initial book and now this updated and improved version! :D

Thanks - I hope you enjoy the rest of it. Apart from the obvious extension, there are quite a few new bits in there, and the John Hendricks bit is a highlight.

Well, now being through the first four chapters I think I can say that the best part is not having come across any obvious "fixes" that found their way into the original, looks great so far! (From a grammar perspective.)
