Since O'Reilly knows I have Programming Perl 3rd (and 2nd, and 1st),
they take 40% off the $55 and offer it to me at $32. Free shipping,
potential tax (haven't hit "go" yet) so $35.
I want it. But I'm not yet convinced.
Most any technical issue I hit, my first (and normally only) step is to
type "my technical issue" into Google and find the answer. My primary
use of Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Guide is to lift my laptop roughly
two inches. I'm not yet convinced that I will use it. I think I want it
inpaper for about the same reason I want to get Mockingbird Time by the
Jayhawks on CD: I have the previous works in physical form and my
continued collection trumps my rejection of the form otherwise. My
logical self recognizes this as a problem.
So, should I pull the trigger?
