Confusion surrounding ordering the book and getting the discount

Hi there,

It was brought to my attention from the publisher that there have been a lot 
of people confused by the discount process, which is to be blamed on the 
anouncement I posted to the list a few weeks ago.

The online web system is not setup to modify a price when special codes are 
entered, so when you place your order it will list the full price at all 
times. However, ther are humans behind the web interface who look at every 
placed order. If the "LFS LIMITED PRICE" text was entered in the instructions 
field, you will get the discount. The price to be charged to your credit card 
will be adjusted manually after the order has been placed. Your credit card 
will not be charged until the day your copy is being shipped out to you.

The estimated shipping date is still around the 28th of this month. It's a 
matter of logistics now. The book is printed, we're just waiting for it to be 
sent from the printing shop (in Quebec, Canada) to the distribution centre 
(Lodi, California)
