    I wanted to forward this bit of information from Sean Convery (the
    author of the book) to the list regarding the request for an
    accompanying reference website for the book:
    : Thanks for sending the review along. I'm very glad folks are finding
    : the book useful. One small point of note: the reference website
    : requested does indeed exist. I reference it in the preface. All the
    : links in URL form are posted here:
    : There's also some other book related stuff off of the root,
    : including a sample chapter and a repository for errata as we find
    : it.
    : Thanks again,
    : Sean
