Ok dudes, school this semester is a bit of a bitch and I'm constantly working on essays. This means I don't really have much time to work on the Canon. So I'm pushing the release date back and I think I'll have it done before this March.

Of course it'll be worth the wait! The question is whether or not Ham is going to die of anticipation between now and then :wink:

As it is the "Loose Canon", is it going to be published in Filofax style, as a ring binder? Subsequent releases of material could then be published as bundles of punched pages (like the stuff you can buy for Filofaxes) to be added in. Otherwise won't owners of the First Edition be reluctant to buy the new material? Just a thought…

... I just thought it'd be a Google Doc

It'd be kind of cool that way. You could add people to be editors :P I'll have to see what its functionalities are for mass-editing...

What? Buy?

Why would you pay for scripture? :confused:

.... I don't know, I think most people would try to argue their immortal soul is worth a couple bucks. Plus, it'll supposedly be going to a good cause; Supporting the church so they can print more copies of god's best-seller...

Sweet. Let's get this thing ready for a hot summer release. :P

I'm not sure precisely where we left off with what needed to be finished, but as always, I'll be glad to help finish whatever needs to be done.

Yeah, sorry bout the hiatus. School was nuts this semester. I think all we got left to compile is Revelations 1: The Book of Revealed Crapola and The Official Pastafarian Prayer Book. A few of the old texts need those crazy symbols cleaned up, but I can handle that in a night or two.

Does anyone care if this thing is just in Times New Roman? Or should we jazz it up?

Yeah, I numbered some of the first page of the prayers unto him thread, but Prayers are funky to number. If you wanna tackle that, I can finish up Revelations 1 and email that to you.

I'm all for minimalism and just using Times New Roman. At least for the free-floating internet document for the mass downloading and proliferation. If people want to change font when they print, that's entirely up to them. Anything but Times New Roman seems unprofessional to me.

The Old Pastament is pretty much completed (aside from late submissions and spelling and formating corrections(if we decide to handle that)) So far the Loose Canon is 111 pages. I figure the New Pastament and the Prayer Book should add another 80ish pages. Booyah
