It's a geek's Christmas! Since Frontier 6.1 shipped, now that I have a half-dozen minutes of spare time in a day, I ordered some new reading material which arrived today. O'Reilly books: sendmail, Linux in a Nutshell, and Perl in a Nutshell.

Dave Winer in Marcia Marcia Marcia (October 1996): "Whenever I ship I get a new keyboard and mouse. It improves my feelings about the computer tremendously. I type with authority. I click with real feeling!"
