Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

There is a cottage industry of software books all the way from advanced development manuals to "single-button mouse for dummies".

All praise the great god O'Rielly.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Had a Safari membership for several years, and never had any problems myself.

It's not a cottage industry - it's huge. International sales of a popular For Dummies book will be six or even seven figures. A print run for a less popular For Dummies title is likely to be low five figures.

Elsewhere in publishing, a hardback that sells 5000 copies is considered a success.
