      Kris,
      It should be en route. Let me know in a week or so if it still isn't there.

      Also, for anyone else who's book is MIA, please SEND ME A PRIVATE MESSAGE via Kickstarter. It's much easier for me to keep track of those requests, rather than sorting through comments on different threads. Thanks!

      Question for you guys and gals that have received yours, did you get a shipping notification? Or just an awesome surprise? I'm super stoked to get mine, as I've been reading through the ebook. Can't wait to flip through it with my hands. :)

      Aaron (and others),
      The link should still be at the top of your screen when you log into Kickstarter if you haven't filled it out.

      Don't worry about the early-release book. The full digital version will be ready in just a few weeks, and will include all the updates and formatting. Update coming next week!

      Best,
      David

      Hi David. What should a person do if they haven't received a link to the survey? I think I completed it, but I can't remember.

      Creator MakerStash on July 31, 2013

      David,
      No rush at all, but I can't access the ebook and I completed the survey. I tried the link as well - james at makerstash dot com

    34. David_medium.small

      Creator David Lang on July 30, 2013

      Got it. Thanks for all the feedback. We'll get to work on it.

      A few notes;

      1) If you're looking for PDF or Kindle version, those are coming. But aren't available quite yet. They will be available for download in a few weeks (closer to the release date).

      2) If you're signed into O'Reilly Atlas and can't find the book. Try this link:
      http://chimera.labs.oreilly.com/books/1234000000422/index.html

      3) If Atlas isn't working for you, send me a message and expect an email from me.
