I'm a beginner. I have no idea of the history. I don't yet know how to find what version of each of those I have, and when it was released.
I was having a little fun (mostly at myself) as I commented on documentation I would like to see in a beginner manual.

TIme travel would be nice. If I could go back in time to when I ordered the book, I'd take better note the publication date. <grin>

I have read more of TLC2 now, and it is well worth keeping. I wholeheartedly forgive the authors their lack of time travel skills.
