|As far as books go, Al and Dave also decided to have a go at broadening their market appeal.
If Douglas Adams managed to sell 14 million books during his lifetime, why can't they? However,
rather than take the plunge directly, they plan to start gradually by combining books about
ASP.NET with detective novels. After all, there's no point in taking wild chances - just gently
woo the readers, and take them along with you.
Their first foray into this field, "ASP.NET Distributed Data Applications", turned out to
contain a disappointingly high proportion of useful technical content, but no doubt they'll
iron that out over time. Look out for "The Web Site Crack'd From Too Much Traffic" and "The
39 Steps To Data Management" - coming to a book store near you some time in the future (possibly).
