Yes, I have been working on it. But only section 8 and a few section 1 for 

It is well more than 6500 printed pages. (I am only doing section 8 for 
now and will cost me a few hundred dollars to get books printed and I 
will offer for around US$33 for man 8 set of two or three books. Once I 
have completed cover I will submit.)

(I also emailed you off list with more details.)
