YESTERDAY.  PM some time.

TODAY, after a couple of us bought books, and all I did was refresh the screen:

Amazon:  liars, cheaters,... statisticians!!
p.s.  Let's see who actually receive the books they ordered.  Three or more of us requested them.   Until one of us actually receives a book, we have to assume there are *none* out there.   Once one of two of us get books, we can then *know* there are none out there!

I might be a culprit too just got the only copy of “oscilloscopes”  I could see on Ebay which from the photo was the same one that was listed on Amazon and a couple of other sellers google found. I already have a copy of Stan’s book

Slight revision to my previous book is marked as received and
confirmed while the other has not confirmed yet
(though have been charged for both).

Dan - FYI I ordered both books after I saw your email this morning.  :)  I
was only partially up to speed on the other thread at the time.

Aha!  Bill, you're the culprit!  ;)
I did the same - you got there first.  The $31 "Oscilloscopes" (was $28
something when I looked) was NOT available.  GlassFrogBooks (via Abe's
Books) came back and said they did not have the copy and requested $10 more
to find another copy.  We will see if they can find it for $38!!  I won't
go higher than that because I won't believe they can find a copy.
As for the "Typical circuits book"  There were three, one at $15, one at
$17 and one at $19.  I ordered the $17 one.    I hope I get it.
Dennis, yes, what you said is right.  I've noticed that with goods
sometimes - There is only one item out there, or was, as some retailer some
place, but other aggregator or sale websites pretend to have is at the same
price.  Sometimes it's obvious and you can tell who the original retailer
is (particularly if the photos are identical).  Sometimes it's not so
simple.  Such aggregator websites are infuriating because they provide no
new benefit, no new information to anyone.  They are just there to scam and
make money for the operator.
