holy shit

A friend of mine, who I've known for years, published a book this year. He's been working on it for the entire past year in his spare time, and I've been keeping track of the progress. It was originally going to be published by O'Rieley, but at the last minute they dropped it due to funding issues. And so now it's being published by another publisher.

Anyway... the "holy shit" part is that it's currently #1 on Amazon's Top Sellers list for Computer & Internet books! And it's in the top 20 for overall best-sellers. Of course, this is probably just for today. It's mostly due to its glowing review on slashdot.org yesterday:
Automating Unix Administration, By Kirk Bauer

slashdot review, by ND

Kirk, ND, and I were all partners for our senior design project in college. Kirk and I both made our first skydive together out of the same Cessna airplane, and we were roommates for a while. All three of us worked at the same internet startup company (Kirk was a founder, and ND and I were the first two employees hired).
