I have made the cover.  Most of the insides are finished.  I need to add a few more practice calculations, and I want to update a few more images.

Double-check any sample problems in the DOE materials if you use them in your "guide".  There are some math errors.

There are MANY errors in the DOE material, not just the math.  "Linear Energy Transfer" for example.

So... I spent all day working on the Half Life formula's for the book (including fixing the practice problems that were wrong).... then MS Word crashes, and apparently taking my incremental backups with it.

So... 9 hours of work on the book down the drain. (And not the sink drain either).

unbelievable, but then again, all too believable,...

9 hours huh?!?!?!?

that is a lot of trust,...

next time, I'll bet you save a stand alone file every two, maybe three hours tops,...

been bit the same way with, well, with all sorts of workbooks, fliers, presentations, test databases, training, etcetera, all across the broad array of MS programs,...

yup, after losing a big one and then getting no grace from the boss about it (you know the boss), I save an interim file every two hours no matter what MS thingy I'm working with, and I highly recommend it to all,...

in all fairness that type of loss is uncommon and is only endured by folks who spend a lot of time with MS,...

and before that one time, with that one boss, on those few occasions where I did endure the massive W T F !!!, I was always able to just work some more hours and reschedule a few other items to be done some other time and cover the faux pas with no one really knowing,... or needing to know,...

and then that one project, on that one day, with that one deadline, and that one boss,... [BH] [boohoo] [Flamer]



every two hours Mike, every two hours, three if you trust your hardware, and MS,...


s imperium mutata saepe,... 8)   (it may lose something in translation)

My story is the same as yours.  I typically save as draft 1.03, 1.04, 1.05 after every few changes due to decades of examples of lost work.  Some times it was MS's fault, some times it was mine.  It's nice to have an incremental backup to go to when you realize you royally screwed up your document somehow.

So... this time...  The latest version of Windows 10 and Office 365... when I try to 'save as' on my system, there is a terrible lag. Usually around 10 seconds, some times longer when I try to access the file system. (I have to use cellular internet where I live, and I believe the combination of slow internet, and complex intranet cause the delay) -- I suspect the file system goes out to the network for some reason.

Anyways, so I have been saving incrementally less often, due to the pain of doing it, and due to MS's built in auto-recovery, auto saves.

Well, apparently I was too dismissive of the auto recovery file, thinking i had an incremental save in place... and I did not.  And then I clicked on update windows, and aparently they erased all of the auto recovery files... a weirdly specific and rare string of event lead to it, but there you go... 9 hours of my life gone.

2) funny how as the inevitable dirtnap clock advances, we tend to get pretty selfish with those hours and minutes

1) At my site, the Safety Coordinator works in the Performance Improvement Department, which also Handles CAP and OE... so lets not joke about that, or I will lose more then 9 hours of my life, which brings me to...
2) Yes, yes it does.  That's also why I am so much less likely to do things for fee now.  I have so much less 'free time' to give. Between the Wife & Kids, the full time Entergy Job, and the Full Time NukeWorker job... free time is just another word for nothing else to do... la de dah, de dah... me and Bobby McG... LW

The Print version is finished.  It should be available for purchase in a few days.

Here is the link when it becomes available: https://www.createspace.com/5810304

It will take me a few more weeks to get the kindle version ready.

I surprised myself, and finished the kindle version also.  I'll post links when it's available.

So... I like to keep my books as cheap as I can.  I try to sell the books for $29.99.

The minimum price set by the publisher for the RCT Cram notes was $49.99 (they won't produce it for less than that, and at that price, there is not profit for me)... lots of pages with lots of pictures.

I'm going to have to go back to the drawing board, and figure out how to make it less expensive.  I'm thinking a larger form factor.  (Page size), which should mean less pages, and theoretically, cost less to make. Grrr.
