Fine. I'll concede this point if we can forego the constant barrage
of posts about pro wrestling and mp3-based music from now on. :-)
We've all had a chance to talk about that and comment on it, and
read about it over and over and over again thanks to you and Tim.

Dude, I've given up on remarking on your spelling. It's a lost cause. :-)

I guess my point was simply that you wrote:

It sounds as though you think this is recent news. As David Crook
pointed out, they've been around for a while. They're not plunging into
anything; they've been there. Besides, when you say they're "*the* dark
side company to port perl" (emphasis mine), it's as though you're saying
that perl had never been ported to DOS/Windows before, either. In short,

Anyway, just nits, I guess. It's been a long day... I'm headin' home
(where I will not use my two turntables and a microphone, nor will I
crank up an mp3 version of "Stairway to Heaven", nor will I switch over
to PPV to see two guys on steroids allegedly beat the hell out of each
other with folding chairs). :-)

No offense intended; none taken.
