Absolute OpenBSD 2nd Edition pre-orders are up.

Austin Hook
Pre-orders for the 2nd Edition of Michael Lucas' Absolute OpenBSD are now
up on the main order website.  Expected to arrive about the same time we
start shipping pre-orders for OpenBSD 5.3.  Pre-orders for the latter will
show up pretty soon as well.  No special early discount, but the
difference does go to support the project.  Or, if you need to pinch those
pennies (before they are discontinued), take the early order path
suggested by Michael's website, rather than through the big online
monopoly.  He gets a bit more that way.

You thought you knew all there is to learn in an introductory book to
OpenBSD?  You might be surprised.  A reference when you need it, and worth
a skim even just to see how OpenBSD has evolved over the last 10 years, if
you have the original volume.

That link did not work when I tried it just now. How much would this
book cost? Any chance of a student discount ;-) ? I like to buy a copy
but if it's going to be more 20 quid, I wouldn't be able to.

I like the 'a moose with uncontrolled diabetes' and 'UPS' Kidney
Transplant Express' parts. Is there any chance for you to start
non-technical writting or 'Dilbert style' cartoons? If so, that will
be really interesting to read.

Thanks.
