    When I first read that they had "discounted" it, I thought you meant they didn’t like it (as in, "Oh I’d discount their opinion if I were you"). Perhaps this is an English / American difference in the usage of the word?
    Anyway, glad they like it enough to offer it as a special deal!

    No, this Americanski had the same initial take on the word "discounted." Glad to hear that it was the wrong take.

    Too funny, I did not even think of that, I guess I am still a Brit. "Discounted" is used there as in "marked down". 🙂

    I highly recommend this book. Ben is a very clear communicator. It is very well written and had me using RegEx the first day.
