    This is excellent stuff, many thanks.
    I would strongly urge you to make this content available via FigShare, which will give added advantages in terms of a doi number, increased visibility, etc.

    • rybicki Says:

      You like?? Ta! And I was wanting to see if I could sell it…but I could also make it available free via the iBook store (iBook version). But you are probably right: no problem with more than one version and a doi would be useful in claiming it as a publication (although, like everything I do, it ain’t quite finished…!).

      OK: now done via Figshare – you want to see if you can find it? Ta!
