Glad to be of service.

At the risk of being labeled a serial mailing list pest, I subscribed
to pdx to learn from the overabundance of Perl celebrities clustered in
the Portland area: Schwern, Ingy, Ovid, the awkwardly cased chromatic,
Allison Randal, Ward Cunningham, Randal Schwartz "with" Tom Phoenix,
Tonya Harding, Monica Lewinsky and Josh's Freaky Neighbor (who we all
hope never stumbles upon the mailing list archives and so spoil what
may well become the longest running joke in Perl mailing list history).
BTW, I am eager to learn the titles of JFN's other Perl books, only
Cozen's Wrox introductory work being singled out so far.
