Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

There were many people who directly or indirectly helped this poor author along the way. Not sure if anyone mentioned in this section will actually read this, but hey, it's worth a shot. First of all, Craig Goodman gets sincere thanks. Without your good word earlier this year, I definitely wouldn't be sitting here writing this book. I shudder to think what I'd be doing instead. I won't forget that, I'm definitely a fan, and you rock. Also, sincerest thanks go to Lucian Beebe and Kristin Kleiderer. I truly owe you all huge.

Thanks Angela Kozlowski of Peachpit and Susan Hobbs for their excellent and much appreciated direction, development, and editing. They both made the writing process smooth and enjoyable. Many thanks to Nathan Derksen (www.nathanderksen.com) for his technical edits—the book is much better because of his efforts and stepping through each exercise in detail. I also send thanks to Nancy Sixsmith for the copy edits, and Chris Gillespie of Happenstance Type-O-Rama for the sweet layout. Thank you to Carole for handling this book.

Thanks to the IMD team who had to put up with me the most—I learned a lot from you guys during “the process.” Thanks to Julee, Shimi, Erick, Jody, Francis, Mary, Jay, Nivesh (engineer/component-boy), Tim, and Sheila. The editors Rosana, Linda, Lisa, Mary(s), Noreen, and Anne deserve huge thanks and kudos for their patience, help, and what (and how) they taught me. All of you are awesome.

And just when you thought I might finish this up, I haul out a few more names. Nate Weiss receives acknowledgment for being the finest piece of geek in my recollection and experience. Not only is he a geek, but also diverse with many talents. I don't want to just thank him; I want to be him. Not only that, but Nate is easy on the eyes (I'm not). George Fox—thanks for being so cool. Amy Wong—you're also cool and perhaps the fastest replier ever. Sarah—I don't know you, but thanks for putting up with the ever-changing mock bios that don't work with your include files. FlashMX2004.com moderators get daily thanks for their continuing efforts on the forums. Thanks a million, guys and girl.

Peter—thanks for not giving me a black eye while enduring the nagging. If anything's wrong with this book, it's entirely my fault. If I add any more names, I'd just be making them up.
