Real Actual Warning:
First off, I apologize that when this book was written, my delete key was not functioning properly, or it could have been my old version of WordPerfect. So, in many instances, I say things that I do not mean and take no great pains to undo the damage. Someday, I will go back and fix these. (see Chapter 12: Procrastination is Your Friend). I might also blame a startling lack of white-out at my local office supply store.
