Notes to other list members:

(1) This appears to be a pay-for only publication. You can pay either
for a printed copy, or pay for a download. There appears to be no way
even to browse the table of contents before you pay.

(2) Later on it says “(GNU Free Documentation License)”. I don’t see how
this ties up with (1).

(3) The cover artwork looks like a generic image from an underwear
catalogue.

This makes me wonder whether it’s some sort of scam, but it certainly
won’t be me who finds out.

Female underwear?

Euh, sure you can browse the ToC (and the first 12 pages). Click the
“preview” link below the cover.

Clicking that preview links shows you can download the PDF from
http://mindaslab.in/ilr/.

Its not a scam.

The free version is in http://mindaslab.in/ilr , but its a beta one. It
may contain some advertisement in future.

People my website is temporarily down. Don’t know what really happened,
talking with hosting guys. So please bear the inconvinience.

In Chrome under Linux (Ubuntu Lucid x86_64), that just opens up a blank
white rectangle, with just a small “X” in the top right-hand corner to
close it.

I guess it’s Flash. I have FlashBlock installed, but I don’t see the
usual “Play” icon. Other Flash sites work just fine.
