This is sort of a sappy post, but it's been on my mind as i cruise the code.

Every code book owner is aware of the left hand line, for changes.

Every cycle, we get the "lines" ...so how much line did we really get last cycle? Is there a known percentage of line ? Is there any comparision data to past code cycles? How much line do we usually create? how about inches of line?

Sparky,

How about missing numbers?

Someone looking at the numbering of the articles might wonder if things were removed or if space was left for "expansion"

The book grew as the 8.5" x 5" to where they had to go 8.5" x 11" just to bind it

...just imagine those #'s all filled! That's a scary thought. [Linked Image]
