"The only thing worse than being talked about... is not being talked about."
I don't think I'll ever really understand the publishing industry. When pjf said that one of my books is far harder to get hold of than the other, I was sure that it would be DMP that would be the hardest to get. I think we're getting pretty close to selling out of the second printing now and I doubt there will be a third (buy now! while stocks last!!)
But no, it's the badger book that Paul is having trouble with. It's apparently seen as such a minority technology that the Australian distributor doesn't keep copies in stock - just getting them from O'Reilly as they are ordered.
I guess the solution is to get more of a buzz going around TT so it's seen as a cool and popular tool (outside of just the Perl community).
