Gladly, we can always use more ppl there.

Well, it isn't practical really. Not in a published and printed since.
However, many, many people, do not like to actually "read" at there
computer. Even myself for certain things i like to "get away" and read
a real, physical book. There are some advantages.. but i doubt the
LFS-BOOK would work that well in it's present state.
It could, given enough time...

Oh, maybe the old PPC author too. When the LFS-BOOK was also officially
supporting a PPC version, iirc. Thou I don't think any of us have heard
from him in a *long* now either way.
