:) Not a problem.

Re: "The Practical SQL Handbook: Using Structured Query Language"
Which edition is this?

Re: "Writing Stored Procedures for MS SQL Server"
Is this the SAMS publication? Which version(s) of MS-SQL Server are covered?

Also, are these (or all of your) books pre-read/used? What kind of condition are they in?

Thanks for your clarification.

BFN,

fp.

Hi there, I'm doing Computing at Uni and Java is a part of the course. We've been given a really cloudy reading list...any chance any of the C++/Java books are by an author called M McGrath?
If so, any chance of any ISBNs?

and: "Fundamentals of Object-Oriented Design in UML"
who's this by, and the ISBN please?

cheers,

Hi fp,
The books were all purchased new by my husband and have been read by him, but they are in very good condition.

Re: "The Practical SQL Handbook: Using Structured Query Language"
Which edition is this? It is the third edition


Re: "Writing Stored Procedures for MS SQL Server"
Is this the SAMS publication? Which version(s) of MS-SQL Server are covered? yes it is the SAMS publication.
Here is some more info:
Description
Writing Stored Procedures for Microsoft SQL Server focuses on teaching you not only how to build effective stored procedures, but also how to optimize and streamline them for long term use. Get an understanding of how SQL Server interprets stored procedures verses direct access via SQL queries. This is followed by detailed instructions on creating and maintaining a repository of stored procedures. Once you know how stored procedures are created and built, you are taught how to determine which logic within an application makes sense to be put into this scheme. Additionally, you're provided with guidance on making stored procedures that are portable across applications.

Thanks for your prompt & comprehensive reply.

I would like to take both of these please; but I have not used the Collect+ service before.

If I understand the process correctly (from the CollectPlus.co.uk web site); I just quote a delivery address & the parcel is shipped to the most convenient location nearby based on post code. I then collect the parcel from there. Is that the case?

I don't believe items are insured for loss/damage in transit for more than £40. If the two books did need replacing then I think their actual cost would be more than this.

http://www.collectplus.co.uk/terms.php

Since the Company is unable to assess the cost to a Customer of the loss or damage of any Parcel, in no case whatsoever shall any liability of the Company, however arising and notwithstanding any lack of explanation, exceed the cost value of the relevant goods in a Parcel or £40 whichever is less. If the goods in the Parcel have any extra intrinsic value to the Customer or the Customer would suffer consequential losses in the event of their loss or damage to the goods in the Parcel, then the Customer is advised to insure against such risks and losses since the Company is unable to warrant that its own insurance will be applicable to such loss or damage or (if applicable) will extend to cover any sums claimed;


Would it be too much trouble to ask you to enquire upon postal costs by Royal Mail (Recorded Delivery, &/or Special Delivery)?

If that is hassle you don't need, that's fine; I'm just concerned about two books in transit without sufficient insurance coverage. That said, you may have to arrange for two packages if both books together are greater than 10Kg... then each one would be insured up to £40 anyway.

PS. What payment method(s) are you willing to accept? (I perhaps should have asked that first!)

BFN,

fp.
#9
Hi,

That's no problem at all :) will pm you now.

Re. insurance coverage, I always presumed that you can only make a claim based upon the price paid for the items? am I mistaken?

I have used collect+ on a couple of occasions and they have provided a very good service.
Basically you would provide me with your postal address and I go on to the website and arrange and pay for the parcel to be delivered to your local participating store, then I drop off the parcel at my local store. If I also provide them with your email address and/or your mobile number they will send you a message to let you know once the parcel has arrived and is ready for you to collect, this is usually within 24 hours of me dropping it off.

The books weigh less than 10kgs so one parcel would be fine unless you would like them to be posted in two parcels so as to extend the compensation amount?
I have had a look at the Royal Mail website and for Recorded (Signed For) First Class delivery it would be £8.96 and that would cover up to £41 in compensation, however I think you can increase the cover up to £100 for an extra £1, which would make the total postage £9.96.
The books are too heavy for special next day delivery by the looks of it.

I am happy to accept payment via paypal gift, paypal (if you are happy to cover fees) or a bank transfer.
I am probably unlikely to be able to post before Saturday, is that a problem?

As I said earlier the books are all in good condition however on further inspection the 'Writing Stored Procedures for Microsoft SQL Server' book does have some dog ear bending on the front and back cover and some slight discolouring to some parts of the mostly white front cover. This is from being carried around in my husbands laptop bag to and from work.
This is nothing horrific but I just wanted to let you know

Ah, no problem :)

ahh, see it looked like something that was on the list :/ ah well.
thank you for looking, I'm afraid I will not be purchasing any.

if you are looking to just buy the books on your list that's fair enough, but my husband works as a developer and has found these books to be very informative

Hi again,

The Recorded Delivery option suits me best, & I can pay by PayPal (with fees payable by me). Delivery on/before Saturday is not a problem.

Yes, the compensation payable would probably just be for the cost price of the books (to me now, with one/other of us having to provide evidence accordingly), but my point was that if they were damaged/lost in transit it would cost me the full retail value to replace them (assuming I could not find pre-owned examples elsewhere).

Thank you also for the additional information about their condition.

Would it be too much of an imposition to ask if you could provide photographs to demonstrate the condition you described?

No rush if you cannot despatch immediately; so please don't go to any trouble unnecessarily this evening, or even tomorrow if that is not convenient.


If you receive interest from another buyer in the meantime who isn't, perhaps, as fussy as I am, then please accept an unconditional offer elsewhere.

Thanks again for your help.

BFN,

fp.

Hmm, I've got an interview for a job in the city I'm going to uni in, so if I get anywhere with that I may go on a mini-splurge. The only reason keeping me back is the whole counting-the-pennies-for-food scenario that I have to bear in mind.
But yes, same as fp, if you receive any unconditional offers from elsewhere, then please go ahead and proceed.

thank you for your correspondence :)

Thanks for your time/trouble with the photos.

I appreciate your comment about the actual pages, but unfortunately the "Writing Stored Procedures for Microsoft(r) SQL Server(tm)" book is not going to be suitable for my needs.

I am still very interested in the "The Practical SQL Handbook" though. Presumably the CD-ROM mentioned on the cover is included.

If that is the case, can we progress with just with a sale of that book/CD-ROM, please?

If you'd like to send me your PayPal e-mail address & advise the total price payable inclusive of Royal Mail Recorded Delivery, I will make payment to you.

BFN,

#19
Hi fp,

That's fine. First class recorded signed for postage will be £6 for just the one book, or I can get quotes for alternative delivery options?
Due to the condition of the other book I'd like to offer it to you for the discounted price of £3.50 rather than £5.50, although if it is surplus to requirements I understand.
Will now pm you my details :)

Hi again,

Thanks for your offer, but it would be obvious it was a pre-owned book, & I needed one that was (as) new, so I'll have to pass on it, sorry.

Is the total price £11.50 (£5.50 for the "The Practical SQL Handbook" & £6 for Recorded Delivery)?

Please let me have your PayPal address & I'll send payment to you.

Thanks again.
