    All prospective participants please note that Peter is starting to distribute pre-reading materials for the course already. So if you're intending to do it, and haven't yet registered AND PAID, then please register AND PAY as soon as possible. At least one person has "registered" but not paid and therefore has not really fully registered, as such.
