November 7, 2011 is my 47th birthday, so (only) on this day, my lucky number is no longer 42, but 47 - and I'm offering a similar treat. Apart from turning 47 on November 7th, I can actually celebrate my 47th birthday no less than 47 hours (starting with November 7th in Kiritimati, which just started at 11:00 GMT+1, while November 7th in Honolulu starts 24 hours later. OK, so that's actually 48 hours, but who's counting - I'll be back next year).
Since I waited an hour with this blog post, I can at least announce that from now on (November 7th 01:00 in Kiritimati) until November 7th 23:59 in Honolulu - about 47 hours from now), I'm celebrating my 47th birthday, offering a 47% discount on my Delphi XE PDF courseware manuals for sale at http://www.eBob42.com/courseware.
Normally priced at 99 Euro, they are now sold for 52 Euro a 47 Euro discount (still including the Delphi XE Development Essentials as free bonus PDF). Note that 19% VAT is required for buyers from The Netherlands, or buyers in the EU that do not enter their VAT number (EU rules, sorry).
You will still get updates of the PDFs until the end of 2012, which includes XE2 coverage, so today is the best time to "jump aboard".
The webshop is also showing the special offer prices, but the original prices will return when Movember 7th is over (in Honolulu), around 11:00 GMT+1.
Finally, please allow 47 hours for delivery of the PDFs by e-mail (since I'm celebrating my birthday - worldwide - today), thanks! ;-)
THE OFFER IS NOW CLOSED - THANKS FOR MAKING THIS A GREAT 47th BIRTHDAY!!
