I recently posted (https://tfl09.blogspot.com/2020/12/my-latest-powershell-book-copies.html) about my latest PowerShell book, published by Wiley. I am proud of this book for many reasons. Most of the writing was done after the start of the Covid pandemic. Frankly, the writing helped keep me sane (well saner).
Writing a book involves a lot of people. I write stuff and then a good team of others help to turn this into a finished product. In particular, I was very happy with the excellent editing done by the Wiley team. The development process was laborious and my editors were a pedantic nightmare - but all in the Best Possible Way! I appreciated the almost anal nitpicking done and the total focus on quality. Everyone involved has my gratitude for their excellent work.
Today I received a mail from a wonderful reader in Italy. He complained that cutting and pasting from the e-book failed. He provided me with some examples. Yes, he is right that what he showed me is NOT what I wrote and submitted.
My apologies for this to him, and everyone reading my book. I can assure you that I did everything I could to avoid this very issue. Jim, my TE, was totally focused on helping me to avoid issues like this - every missing capital letter, every missing parameter name, and every other minor error was flagged and resolved. I did what I could, and am sorry for the resulting issues.
With that said, one of the things I insisted on was that I could publish these scripts on GitHub. You do not have to buy my book (although I hope you will) to use the scripts. You canfindt the scripts at GitHub account - https://github.com/doctordns/Wiley20.
So if you want to try out the book and the scripts contained in it, please do NOT cut/paste from an electronic version - use the scripts on Github. If you find errors there, PLEASE file an issue at https://github.com/doctordns/Wiley20/issues. I will do my best to fix anything that might be broken and republish the updated script. You are welcome to fork this repo and I'll accept PRs that fix errors in the scripts.
Thanks for everyone who either both my book or uses my scripts.
