   Insane filing system
  They (used to, at least) file their Science Fiction (and some other

 And anyway, computing by publisher is getting a lot better. You just
 browse O'Reilly, Addison Wesley and Prentice Hall.

Heretic. Manning publish Conway's OO Perl book.

 Laugh? I thought I'd never start...

sounds like its time to dust my DBI book off and warm up the old scanner ;-)
