I am _very_ sorry to have to say this. After all this postponing and talking 
about releasing for sure before I move, I get this happening. Earlier today 
at work I did something wrong and I really hurt my back. I don't know what it 
is. Maybe it's just a simple case of pulled muscle, but I can't do much with 
my arms, I can't take a deep breath and I can't twist my body around using my 
hip joints. It even hurts sitting in this chair typing this. I'm in no 
condition of doing any prolonged work to release the book. Tomorrow after 
work I have to pack up the computers and get ready to leave first thing 
Monday morning.

So, I'm hereby unfreezing CVS and you (editors) guys can start making updates 
again. I'm requesting not to do any package updates, just get the current 
stuff worked out whatever issues may come up. At this point I cannot make a 
new deadline because I don't even have an Internet connection setup yet. We 
all know them Internet guys can take a while to come by and do their thing 
(I'll have to get a modem so I can at least use dial-up).

Again I do apologize. I know most of you guys will understand and say no big 
deal. But it still bothers me greatly. I don't take making promises lightly 
and having no control over the situation is frustrating. I really feel like 
Jesse: things feel they're getting stale and the wait's getting way too long. 
Can't even do an LFS-4-pre1 release or something to that effect. I have to 
sign off now. If I don't get a chance to email tomorrow, then good bye for 
now guys. I hope to at least touch base in about a week and a half's time.
