Just reviewing Packt stuff again. They've changed a large number of my commands.

I’m telling you, man. Packt isn’t worth it.
I know you like the deal less, but you want a quality publisher, with a good layout editor, gotta go with No Starch or Wiley. Packt blows hard.

I'm doing a tech editors job for them, problem is, all my content was fine and now they've screwed it all up. Like why the hell are they litterally changing commands. If I bought this book as it currently stands by them, I'd be binning it.
Well, Oreilly say no one reads books over 300 pages anymore and so far No Starch and Wiley haven't been interested. Also they require us to put all this into word docs and change like the entire layout from memory.
I've never owned a Packt book, I read a few many years ago and they were rubbish then.
They haven't changed.
I'm not really concerned about money with No Starch or Wiley, just that they take all rights and I must hold them harmless which to me seems like insanity

Right... time to review your edits (ch 8 Network). This will be luxurious.
