I can't wait until it comes out. it seems much better than too many items!(not)
It wouldn't make much difference to most people if TMI had the recipe book, searching capability, mod filters, etc. that comes in NEI. But it does have those things, so your sarcasm about it on a page with the specific purpose of trying to locate it is a bit puzzling. There is a reason the mod is popular. Also, I had TMI to use in the interim while waiting for NEI, and it suddenly stopped working, even after removing and replacing the mod. I've never heard of a problem like that with NEI. So I for one shall wait patiently for ChickenBones to release the awesomeness that is NEI.
