    Hey Andrew,

    A fan of yours. Just to let you know, we have been lurking in your 60+ blog pages and it has a lot of broken links to AssetBuilder. Now at 30+ page.

    By the way, thank you for writing a very good book. Me and my wife read both books already. More power to you guys. And keep updating your blogs.
