Hehe, yeah it's me.  Glad you like Mongrel.  I'm actually using Lua actively in another project I've been tinkering on called Utu:

Lua's being used in the server as the main way to code the server's logic and control.  I really like Lua for this kind of embedded control and man is it a great cool language that's well documented.

> Roberto, you might also consider Safari online book service?

Safari has "interesting" side effects for authors.  I really haven't got a straight answer as to whether I get royalties from Safari users or not.  I know A/W and other O'Reilly partners get a cut, but the royalty question really was never answered.

Then again, most tech book authors don't plan to make any money on them.  It's more for the clout.  Roberto is in a different situation where he does want to make money from the book sales, but most publishers charge too high of a premium for what's basically a paypal+download service.
