#LS11 Day 4 - Delayed by ice but have a tip for you

While you luxuriate in the sunshine and warmth, I have been shoveling ice and snow.  Just so you know.

According to the IBM Press folks, the Mastering XPages book is sold out in the Bookstore there, but it is still available in the Virtual Bookstore in your sessions database (or via the link above).  I wanted to point out that the second most popular book in the Bookstore there is The Social Factor: Innovate, Ignite, and Win through Mass Collaboration and Social Networking, which may be sold out by now, but the second most popular book in the Virtual Bookstore is Lotus(R) Notes(R) Developer's Toolbox.

The best thing about all three books, and indeed the other 62 books in the Virtual Bookstore, is that you can order them from sunny Florida, and they will show up in frigid places like North Dakota  or Munich, Germany or Toronto, Canada even before you do, without your having to lug them.  Also, you can order most of the books in multiple currencies and with relatively local shipping, unless you live in Antarctica, in which case you are on your own.

Hey, it's actually warmer in Antarctica than North Dakota this time of year! It's even above freezing in many places, making it even warmer than some January nights in Florida I can recall (but would rather not). C'mon UPS!
