(old) Volume III State of the Union

So, I was actually locked out of my own forum (oh, the shame :P )

As you well know by now, MOXiI Vol III is ready (actually underwent its first update today). The way it works is I print in limited batches of 50-100 each time. The first print run of 50 evaporated, and the next print run of 100 is scheduled by end of this week (and corrects a few annoying typos as well as a print error).

The book will continue to evolve - I already have plans for N├╝waStone (9.3.3 JB) and Pegasus to go into a future revision (as soon as Lookout and Pangu publish their own articles, since I won't still either's thunder).

Now, those on you on the pre-order list - you're still there, fear not. I'm just struggling and in fact made a mistake in opening up AMZN first - I thought I'd get a trickle, but I got a flood. Nonetheless, here's what I'll say:

Those on the pre-order list automatically get a $20 discount (which is significant) provided that they wait a BIT longer, and then order directly from this site, ON THIS THREAD, when I open it up probably by end of week. Payment will need to be by either BTC or PayPal (which will take a commission, *Sigh*). But understand I need to set up logistics here, so I ask you wait a bit longer. All you'd have to do is just email preorder@ again, saying "I was on the preorder". I'll find you. There are some 200+ people there, so I can't send a blast email. And if you've already ordered through Amazon, well.. sorry.

Re:Color copy - again, please wait. I'm working on getting it in hardcover form which would be a BLAST. another option is to do it in binder form, which would allow insertion of new pages as they become available (re: above future jailbreaks/malware/what not). Still looking into both.

All in all, yes, the process could be a lot more streamlined, but - also - I could have had some help here and not have been author/editor/publisher/mailer all-in-one.

Oh, nice. Does that mean the book can be ordered on this thread, when you post a link?

J, I know you've been busy but lookout has already published -> https://info.lookout.com/rs/051-ESQ-475 ... etails.pdf

If I ordered the book yesterday through Amazon, is it too late to get those updates?

They did today; I saw. But note that is in a *FUTURE* release. I'm not THAT fast that I can incorporate the updates a day later :-) Also, bear in mind you'll always, by definition be "behind" in that I keep updating the book, but once it's printed, it's printed. Can't change the laws of physics here.

If you AMZN order shipped, it might be too late. You should DM me so I A) check B) sign it for you if you want :-)

Hi,

I have some questions, if you have time to answer. :-)
1. Concerning future updates to the book (like e.g. the Pegasus) - do I understand correctly there will be possibility to get them in some form (electronic?) even when I already have bought the book?
2. Concerning ordering directly - what is the final price (PayPal/BTC) if I need international shipping and I preordered?

I always have time to answer; That's why the forum is here (when I remember my password, that is).

1. Nope; If you buy the book, it's frozen in time. That self publishing enables me to frequently update is a huge boon for me and for my readers, but I cannot possibly deliver free updates to every single buyer. Plus, if this were a "traditional" book you wouldn't be expecting updates frequently. Suffice it to say that , WHEN you buy, you will buy the most up-to-date version. In that sense, I don't foresee a "MOXiI 3rd Edition", ever.

I am nonetheless announcing, that the next edition will contain N├╝wastone (Pangu are explaining it publically next week in POC, Korea), and Pegasus (and ***IF*** I can get my hand on the actual sample, in an unprecedented detail). If that makes you wish to defer your purchase of the book, that's understandable. Said update, however, might not be out before early next year. Of course, you could always give the copy you buy now to friends and buy a new one to support my hard work ;-)

2.BTC price includes shipping (trying to promote it :-) . PayPal isn't open yet. Shipping will likely be $25 - not a cent over what USPS would charge me. I don't make much money off these books.

Ok. We have paypal running at last. Please transfer to moxii3 at this website address. Int'l ok, $75 + $5 shipping if you're in the US, or $25 if you're elsewhere. If you say I'm a friend Paypal won't take any commission, apparently. Please be my friend. I'm generally nice :-)

If you're on the pre-order list, send me $60 instead of $75 and just mention that. I'll find you and apply a discount - thanks for believing in me when the book was still during labor :-) Note that pre-order list is closed, but I'll re-open it for MOXiI Vol. I.

(Please be honest and don't make me rummage through the long list of emails if you didn't really order)

I ordered through one of our suppliers which I'm not sure what he used to order the book (his name, company, ...). Hopefully I won't miss any updates ;)
