    Paul, not a dull old fart - a darling darling good old fart for sure!

    Thank you for this - it's a bloody ripper! :smoochy:

    OK. There's a double-sided version up there now. But....

    This isn't optimized yet for printing. The reason there is a whole page that just says "Chapter ___" is not aesthetic. I haven't yet figured out how to get it all right so that the Table of Contents (generated automatically) shows the chapter headings properly if I put them on the same page as the text body. Hopefully I'll work it out in the next few days, at which time I'll put the chapter titles on the same page as the text and the book will take up less space.

    Thanks, Mark.

    Volume II? Containing what? Dart doesn't have another 100 pages of interesting stuff or I would have put it in there already. There's a bit more to go in yet, but not a whole lot more from what has already been posted to ESMB.

    I'm quite happy to do other ones. That's what PaulsRabbit eBooks is for. Who wants what?

    Before everyone starts salivating, I would need to have a good reason to spend the time. That first one took me about 40 hours all told. Later ones would go quicker as I wouldn't have to figure out all the software again, but it would still take a considerable time to produce a good product. And if it has my name attached to it it's going to be a good product.

    As the saying goes, I'm not doing this as an amends project.

    Still, I'm open to proposals and negotiation. Not necessarily involving money.

    Wow! You did a good job. :thumbsup:

    I've put a link/thread to this on OCMB for others there.

    (That's interesting stuff about the early days and another very revealing "picture" of Hubbard.)

    I downloaded it and read it today. It is quite wonderful and has answered many questions I have had about the early days and the evolution of the cult.

    Thanks, it has helped me identify some of the places I got hooked in with Scn. Also helps me see the adversarial SciLons of today as the automatons they are.

    Wonderful stuff!:thumbsup: :clap: :clap: :clap:

    Duplex printing does not depend on the doc format... it's the printer feature selection. If the printer has a duplex attachment it will do it if you select that feature when printing.

    You don't have to change anything in the doc as it stands now. :)

    You are OT SchwimmelPuckel, ( feel free to choose another word too) - you intended it in... say October, and then bing! back in January DOF get's his idea and works on it, in time for you to have it in a few weeks in November. :D You see time is no barrier to someone who is cause.

    I think that Mark is teasing you just a little bit. Don't take it too seriously. :D

    This is fantastic Paul. Really well done. :thumbsup:

    If you wanted a new project.......:whistling: ............

    My suggestion would be to collate all the personal stories into an ebook.

    It would take ages, even if you used what FTS has done on exscn.net as a basis, but it would be worth it....IMHO.

    The idea was to avoid a new chapter starting on the left-hand (even-numbered) page. How does the home-user printer recognize that a new chapter is starting and so automatically insert a blank page before it?

    Okay, now I understand you. You are being picky about the chapter beginning page and where it starts. You sound like me... picky on the format details.

    You know... I can only imagine being that picky on a labor of love that you are doing.

    Simply Marvelous:thumbsup:

    A big Thank you to Dart and Alan, for their writings.

    This is of tremendous value.

    Even further, I imagine a webbed "Recollection of Adventure" by all the "Old Timers" that can possibly be contacted.

    I wondered where you were this last few days Paul ... Now we know :)

    I bookmarked dart a week ago with the intention of starting from post number 1 and working through to present time .... now I can print and read this wherever I like ... fantastic ... (I am still hoping to find some data from the early days re LRH and his apparent cocaine use which I have heard hints about on this board but can never find anything specific on ... I bet dart knows if anyone does).

    Many thanks Paul.

    As noted by PG, I'm teasing you a bit. But I AM open to further material as it becomes available .... :coolwink: As it is though, I want you to know that doing this is GREATLY APPRECIATED!
