F# Book Rumors

Ted said it, so I don't have to. Thanks :)

Yeah we're doing a book together, F# In A Nutshell for O'Reilly. I may disappear from the social scene for the rest of the summer in order to meet the deadline. Please don't forget about me. I'll miss you all very much. I will of course still be attending/speaking at all of the conferences I have already signed up for (list to be posted in a later blog).
