Yeah, I do realize that, although I suppose I should note it somewhere... ;-)

At some point I'm hoping to write a section where messages get sent over a
distributed channel via TCP/IP, but haven't got there yet.

Right now I'm working on a section on pre-emptive multitasking, since I haven't
really taken care of the problem in the intro where the family's children
starve to death in a 'normal' program!
