Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

Even a small book owes its existence to many more people than the one whose name appears as author. I am immensely grateful to the other writers who jumped in to help complete this book and who contributed a great deal to the text: Jo Ellen Shires, Ira Brown, and Barbee Davis. Jon Steever has done a masterful job of ferreting out the meaning that the other authors and I intended, all the while tactfully suggesting that clarity is considered a virtue by Sams' readers. Technical errors, though unintentional, are still a sin in technical writing. Connie Myers expertly pointed out both the sins of commission and of omission, and she even exorcised some of the devils found in the details herself. Those errors that remain are entirely my responsibility.

Writing, especially writing against intense deadlines, takes a toll on the writer's family. The family and pets always sacrifice more than the writer is aware of (even though occasional hints may be dropped from time to time). I know I speak for the other writers when I thank our families for their patience and forbearance. My wife, Gerlinde, could write a book of her own on the topic. Hopefully, she will leave it in private circulation.
