Thanks.. I've listened to about a dozen

I downloaded at least a dozen of your podcasts and listed to them on a recent trip (to Singapore where I saw Dries). I am building my Drupal library and would very much appreciate a chance at Emma Jane's book.

My user id at webstocks (and d.o.) is dougsap. Thanks! Doug

I do in fact have a module for that...

To count how many modules I've written and how long its been since I last wrote one. :) http://drupal.org/sandbox/davereid/1204462

Wow - you might need an intervention!

I'm a new listener and Drupal

I'm a new listener and Drupal user/developer. The book looks like it would be useful to me.

I registered on drupal.webstocks with the username 'forestplay'.

Guest wrote 4 years 13 weeks ago

How could you???

I want Emma Jane's book, and so I went to the evil Drupal Webstocks and wasted an enormous amount of time! Thanks a bunch!

My username there (as everywhere else) is mollyavalon.

I also signed up for the Weekly Drop and am thinking about spending the money for a subscription to .net magazine. Incidentally, according to their Wikipedia page, it was called Practical Web Design in the US (but apparently not any more, because I can't find it under that name).

I always get good stuff, more Drupal Ed, from your podcast.
