Thanks, John. I'm watching this thread thinking, "guys, I'm right here!"

Also, Alex Wyglinksi is a pretty good friend of mine, and I'm glad
people are finding the material useful enough to pirate it. Just word
on my book. It's not meant to properly introduce how to use GNU Radio;
I just used GNU Radio as the basis of the experiments and examples
that were covered in the book. The GNU Radio parts of the book will
probably be more useful to an advanced user and not as beginner

Not that that should stop you from buying it... ;-)
