> Hello, everyone.
> The print edition of Getting Started with Ubuntu 12.10 is once again
> available via <http://ubuntu-manual.org/buy/gswu1210/en_US>.
> Lulu.com's printers were having problems printing our manual and
> though we worked with their technical support team, we were unable to
> determine the cause of the problem and resolve it.
> I uploaded a copy of our manual to CreateSpace.com for publication.
> The proof copy printed okay for me, so I've released it for public
> purchase.  The quality of the printed manual through CreateSpace.com
> is similar to that of Lulu.com.
> There are a couple additional benefits of using CreateSpace.com:  (1)
> we can sell the manual at cheaper rates, and (2) our manual will be
> available for purchase through amazon.com and European Amazon sites
> including amazon.co.uk, amazon.de, amazon.fr, amazon.it, and
> amazon.es.  (It will take a few days for our manual to appear on the
> Amazon sites.)
> If you order a printed copy of our manual and encounter any problems
> with it (print quality, etc.), please let me know.
> I'm finishing up work on a few translated editions and plan to publish
> those soon as well, so stay tuned!
> Thanks!
