Grumpy Post III: New Kandel 2012

Ok, forget about it: The 5th edition of Kandel's Principles of Neural Science has been officially postponed until October 2007. Originally it was announced for September 2004, and I have been waiting for it ever since (see for example post 1 and post 2). I am expecting it to come out when I am retiring, i.e. in 80 years or so.
I don't wanna be impolite and I admire Eric(h) Kandel a lot, but he should take care that it won't have to be published postmortem...

I saw an interview with him on TV the other day. He is awesome and in very good shape. Go for it, Eric...

Hey Jerry B.,

after selling my ghetto 4th edition 3 months ago, I thought I was smartly planning ahead and making an exceptionally good deal. O yeah!

Now, After desperately waiting for the 5th to come, I had to buy the 4th again as my courses here heavily make use of Kandel material.
O no!

Mais C'est la vie, mon cheri.

Oh crap,
I hope you weren't relying on the information of my blog. Never do that.
As I still have only the 3rd edition, could you scan your 4th and put it on the web? That'd be nice.
All the best,
