Early Copy of my Book!
posted on July 3rd, 2012

Aaagggh!! I'm so excited. My publisher just sent me an early copy of my new book, Girls Get Curves: Geometry Takes Shape, and it looks so cool!! Man, even though this is my 4th book, it never gets old... After living inside my head an on my laptop for years... here it is, finally, in physical form. Total rush. It's like holding the last 2 years of my life in my hands. (I guess holding Draco is, um, like that, too!)Girls Get Curves Book Cover

People might say, "But you've been staring at the cover and the pages of this book for months now!" The thing about a book is, once it's printed, it's printed. So no matter how much you think you've perfected it on your computer, there's that human element - that physical element - that gets introduced at the printing stage. Will the shade of green on the cover be printed like we thought? How will the pages look in the binding? What if some of the last typo corrections didn't get put into the book? So many little things can go wrong at this last stage. You never really know what your readers are going to see till you're holding it. And I'm happy to say that it turned out great!

Now - will there be typos that my editor and I missed somehow? Probably! But that's pretty standard fare. In fact, like always, I'll be having a contest for you guys to find those typos. Anyone who is the first to find a particular typo that is important enough to be corrected for the next printing will get a signed picture from me and a mention on the Typos page of the GGC website. (It will be - but it's not up quite yet.)

Speaking of the GGC website, I'd better get back to writing it. As always, I'll have ALL the problems' worked out solutions on the website, and that takes awhile to do. I just hate it when you get an answer that's different from the one in the back of the book. This way, you can see how I got that answer. Nice, right?

Thanks for all of your ongoing encouragement throughout this process. Smiley

Wow, you really are excited! That's great! My daughter used to call your set the 'Trilogy'. What is it now? A 'Quartet' or a 'Tetrology'? 'Tetrology' sounds more 'math'! Suffice, before long we'll have to put in the "McKellar Annex" to our own library. The shelf is getting full! Congrats on another text!

The common rail system prototype was developed in the late 1960s by Robert Huber of Switzerland and the technology further developed by Dr. Marco Ganser at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, later of Ganser-Hydromag AG (est.1995) in Ober?geri.
The first successful usage in a production vehicle began in Japan by the mid-1990s. Dr. Shohei Itoh and Masahiko Miyaki of the Denso Corporation, a Japanese automotive parts manufacturer, developed the Common Rail fuel system for heavy duty vehicles and turned it into practical use on their ECD-U2 common-rail system mounted on the Hino Rising Ranger truck and sold for general use in 1995.[3] Denso claims the first commercial high pressure common rail system in 1995.[4]
Modern common rail systems, whilst working on the same principle sensor are governed by an engine control unit (ECU) which opens each injector electronically rather than mechanically. This was extensively prototyped in the 1990s with collaboration between Magneti Marelli,Centro Ricerche Fiat and Elasis. After research and development by the Fiat Group, the design was acquired by the German companyRobert Bosch GmbH for completion of development and refinement for mass-production Common Rail Nozzle . In hindsight, the sale appeared to be a tactical error for Fiat, as the new technology proved to be highly profitable. The Common Rail Injector Valve had little choice but to sell, however, as it was in a poor financial state at the time and lacked the resources to complete development on its own.[5] In 1997 they extended its use for passenger cars Common Rail Injector . The first passenger car that used the common rail system was the 1997 model Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD,[6] and later on that same year Mercedes-Benz C 220 CDI.Common Rail Shim & Gasket kit have been used in marine and locomotive applications for some time. The Cooper-Bessemer GN-8 (circa 1942) is an example of a hydraulically operated common rail diesel engine, also known as a modified common rail.

Congrats to your hard work and determination to release the magazine. It’s true, no matter how many revisions and re edits we have done on the soft copy we are still not so happy till we get to read the physical copy. It’s a different internet from consumer triple play

It is really good to see that celebrities like you are finding time to write and share about some interesting facts. I think it will be a great inspiration for the fans and your colleagues to do the same. Are the copies available now? Organize Technologies
