I would never hire anyone who knows what shibboleth means (don't worry Jeff
I will most likely never get the opportunity to hire you and you just
copied shibboleth from the post anyway).
I don't get your EJB to MJB analogy to Perl and PERL. I don't think the
letters are the same. Are they? Plus what about the caps?
Just so no hard feelings are taken I think a BEER is in order. Anyone from
the list who can make it to the Issaquah Brewpub before 6 and can spell
PERL gets a beer on me.
