Great to have Kevlin here - welcome!

I think the book link should be: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/059652269X?tag=jranch-20 (to the Software Architect book, not the Programmer book)?

Aw man. I noticed I had that wrong and "fixed it" and regenerated all materials before posting. Then I used the old version. Sigh. Sorry Kevlin.

Now I'm really puzzled... the mailshot said Software Architects... the initial post said Software Architects... it looked like only the link was wrong... but now it looks like the link was the only thing that was right?

So which book is bring promoted?
