I turned in the first pass of the MoNC finished layout this afternoon.
It currently stands at 560 pages, and is still missing the handouts appendix and index. It took an hour to distil a low resolution PDF. The finished book will be closer to 600 pages.
In the next few weeks the book will be going through several iterations as we proof-read, error-trap, track down a missing map, find artwork to fill blank spots, tweak the layout, and a buff and polish.
I'm posting this because I know you chaps have lots and lots of questions about MoNC, but please give us a month or so to finish this mammoth beast before bombarding us with them. We will be very happy to talk when we have the finished book in hand and can give definite answers to your queries.
I'm sure Bret will be along shortly to give you all a commander's overview.
