Thanks for the tip -- I had not read anything from him bz I don't "do" Perl (on the "someday-maybe" list), but he is delightful to read -- thanks! I love his comments related to computer languages, such as "Recall that the essence of Modernism is to take one cool idea and drive it into the ground." The next sentence didn't have the word "relations" in it, but it might have. Smiles. --dawn Received on Mon Apr 05 2004 - 20:15:47 CDT
