Hmmm, I think I can clarify this one, Evan.  Her book was returned to the 
checkout page for further editing, and she didn't catch the file before 
somebody else downloaded it first.  I don't know if anything can be done about 
it, but it may be a good idea for the admin folks to inquire of the proofer if 
he or she would like to make the changes or give the book out as a "new" 
checkout.  I guess there's nothing she can do now except choose another book or 
try to get a hold of Volunteer 50.  Volunteer 50 seems to be the guilty party 
who snapped up the book.  <sigh>  Es la vida I guess.

I sure hope admin can do something.  In these economic times something that 
used to be shrugged off is now kinda important.
