This might sound like a lot of unnecessary work, but believe me, it
isn't. Blurb's templates can be very frustrating, particularly when it
comes to text formatting and type faces (even texts in headers etc).

It might be easier if you are doing the whole thing yourself, and not
cutting and pasting input from other people, but if you decide to
change typefaces in the middle of the job, it can get messy.

Get the details down first, before you start stringing the pages
together. There isn't much in the way of global editing (like changing
typefaces in page numbers or headers on a page).

It fun.

Liked to hear about the 24" computer. Been looking in that direction myself.
