I just gave the book a proofreading. I ended up re-writing much of it in the process. I think the moral of the story is don't write the first draft at an hour when you would normally be asleep. One good thing did come out of it. As long as I was doing all this extra writing, I decided to throw in one of my most favorite billet techniques. You'll recognize it by its sheer coolness, but just in case, I'll give you the initials...T.S.E.A.A.A.B.B.

I have been considering removing the A.A.A. component of the name, as I do not wish to infringe on Marc's A.A.A. series. I may substitute the word "Impromptu."

Yeah, I think I'm definitely gonna get rid of the "AAA." I don't want to invite any controversy.

Ultimately, it's the technique itself that will have a tremendous impact (don't believe me? Well, you'll see...)on how people do billet work. Still, it would be nice to have an equally cool name. I'll need to give this some thought.

Thank you Torkova and Paul. I think I will use "Extemporaneous" instead of AAA. "Extemporaneous" has more syllables, so I may cut back on the rest of the title to compensate. In any case, you won't be disappointed with the actual material. That's for sure.

The new initials are T.E.B.B - I like it.

I completed another edit (over 50 pages...no wonder it took so long.)

The supplement itself is pretty much done. I'll have time to work on it again on Sunday, and should be able to wrap up then. I am not terribly concerned about the mailing. In a worst case scenario, I can always mail it over a few days, like last time.

The only unknown factor is that I have no idea how I'm going to edit certain comments from prior supplements. Changing them in Word is not an option, as I have no idea which file is which (I literally have hundreds of Switchcraft related files on my computer) and, even if I could figure that out, I'd need to re-bookmark the entire thing from scratch.

That leaves Acrobat. I tried typing over the existing text, but it kept on messing up margins or coming out odd looking.

I'll figure something out.

Dan, you won't be disappointed. I just converted the final word file to PDF, and inserted the videos. It is an amazing supplement. Now, I just need to take care of a few other matters, as mentioned earlier, and it should be good to go.

It's done. I uploaded the book to payloadz and updated my website.

It's about 1 in the morning, and I'm about to turn in.

Tomorrow (really today)the first batch (assuming I may be prevented from mailing them all at once) of supplements will be emailed to my list.

Switchcraft is a monumental treatise and thanks to Elliott (and to a bunch of kind contributors) keeps growing and growing ad infinitum. Smile
Then you'll rise right before my eyes, on wings that fill the sky, like a phoenix rising!

What a wonderful surprise, and I had already planned on dedicating several hours today to billet practice. Smile

Thanks again Elliott.

I thought I'd be first to respond but apparently am late for the party. I guess everyone is as excited as I am about this new release. What more could be said but thanks Elliott and keep up the great work!

Many thanks (again!!) for another fine supplement. I haven't gotten through all of it, but some of the thinking around the Frixion is fantastic.
