The current version is 2.0, and it is light years away from the first edition when we shot photos with a QuickCam... (look it up, early, basic digital technology... my avatar to the right is a 20 year old shot taken with a QuickCam and hand colored with PhotoShop). A lot of the information is just basic knowledge.

BMW hasn't changed airheads in a decade or more. I will bring up the issue of updating the book at the Gathering of the Clans with him next week.
