one more post before I leave the world wide web of freedom for the night. I clicked on my own advertisement on this blog (cause it looked interesting) and found that lulu.com does book binding! $5 binding fee, .02/page for BW and .15/page for color.
seems WAY REASONABLE compared to what i heard a special someone tell me their thesis cost. yeah.. its not 8.5x11, but it is a book. check it out.
