Double posters should be shot!

Don't let me hold you back. It's $28 for one script. That's a lot no matter what's written on those pages. This is good stuff. I think the principle this is based on is fascinating. Even if you know why our senses work the way they do, it's extremely counter intuitive to believe this method could work. And that's a very good thing.

Time will tell. But for my style and comfort levels, I think I'd only use this as a one on one experiment. Again, I'll report back when I get this to work.

Okay just tried it with whisky on my girl. Sorry to report it didn't work. I wish it did but it didn't. Would love to hear about success stories. I have none yet to share.

If you do this exactly as Morgan has suggested, it works. Its 99% presentation. You have to be able to sell what you are doing much as in mentalism. Hope this helps.

For those interested, the mouthwash goes over better than the whisky.

The colour does make a difference and is a nice visual punch at the end.

$28 too much? Its the price you pay to know before everyone else.

Besides, I like this effect as I doubt many people will actually perform it - it really is a guts and glory effect.

the PDF is protected against printing editing or re-saving... so printing isn't an option.. however.. thankfully it seems I'm in the first 250 orders.. so I get booklet too... so no need to lug the macbook Smile

and yes.. I know there are pdf password removers out there.. but they don't always work.. and most cost Smile

It is true. More protection for the creators. All for it.

Because after 250, they don't...Plus, it is a big issue. Selling a print protected PDF is ridiculous, and there is no good reason for it. It certainly doesn't keep pirating from occuring. It only punishes the people that legitimately purchase the PDF.

I know for a fact that the release of this was meant to limited...

I don't think that this is a punishment at all...

consider it a perk for the lucky 250...

"After we are out of the 250 limited edition booklets,
Taste Conditions will ONLY be available
as a PDF file that will be instantly
delivered to you via email."

This doesn't sound very limited to me...Hopefully it will be printable at that point.

I cant see the big issue with it not being printable... Ok so I was lucky I managed to get in the 250 limit to get a printed booklet as well. but I was more than happy with the pdf.. I travel a lot and always like something to read as I go.. The trick is good enough for me to have transcribed into my moleskin notebook to re-read on my travels..

The danger with PDF's is that they are very easy to spread around. I think limiting the printing is a fair way for Morgan to protect his intellectual rights.. if he didn't do that, he might as well have put it up on his blog for anyone to copy.

I'm happy with my purchase, and even happier that I'm not going to have to transcribe it into my notebook..

It's worth the money.. and still under 250 when I brought it last night.. order it now and the non printing won't effect you Smile

I am curious how you came to the conclusion that the inability to print the document and resell it doesn't help deter pirating. There is a good reason for it, otherwise it wouldn't have even been implemented this way.

Hopefully more people follow Morgan's example.

Creating a non printable document, and one where text is not selectable -- creates an inability to input the doc via a scanner, run OCR (Optical character recognization) software, edit the doc, and send it to the masses...

If you can print it -- you can pirate it...

I helped out on this project, I did the graphic on the front and spoke with morgan numerous times on the phone about the script. It is fun isn't it? Amazing when you try it yourself.

Impressive, and very technical sounding. But you are thinking about this too hard. I will make it easy for you. Check out the attachment (scaled down so I could attach). It doesn't matter if the PDF is print protected, it only takes a matter of seconds to pirate it if one wanted...This is a simple screenshot using Faststone screen capture. No need to reinvent the wheel.

The point is, it doesn't slow down piracy at all. Especially considering most piracy is peer to peer trading anyway. The only thing that really keeps people from trading material is watermarking with the purchasers name, and password protecting the file.

I am not advocating piracy. I certainly want their work to be protected. But there are better, smarter ways, of handling the material. Denying people the ability to print the document doesn't help the cause. It only bothers the people that own the material. I have printed out every single PDF I have purchased. Its not a perk...

If a creator decides he wants to release 5 copies of a book, and leave the table of contents out of all but one -- that's the decision of the creator...

I think morgan's work should be praised, instead of aching about not being able to print it...

come on guys...

When the spec spits it out it is the colour of mouthwash, as that's what it is.
