>>The British publisher Packt Publishing has just released an
>>English version of Cedric Gemy's Scribus Beginner's Guide 
>>(https://www.packtpub.com/scribus-1-3-5-beginners-guide/book), which
>>covers Scribus 1.3.5 and hence 1.3.6--1.4+ as well. The book is
>>available in print and as an eBook. As some of you know, Cedric is a
>>long-term contributor to Scribus and an experienced lecturer on
>>graphics design at various French universities.
>>Subscribers to the Scribus mailing list are being offered a 20%
>>discount off the book price. To buy the book at the reduced price, you
>>need a Packt account and insert a password, which is SCRIBG20 (case
>>sensitive), to the shopping cart.
>I went there intending to order it, but then I went somewhere else for
>a minute. When I came back to complete the order I got "500 - Internal
>Server Error." :(

The server is finally back online. I tried to buy the book but when I
started the order I did not realize the code above had to be the
password. So I used a different password, and now cannot buy the book
with the discount unless I can change my password or delete the account
and start over. The Packt books website offers me neither option. It's a
really annoying website. I don't even want to do business with Packt
