Your a great sales rep Ray. I don't know how we keep missing that most
valuable aspect of you!.

It took me weeks to home my original programming with Perl notes, and
I'm interested if all the color coding for the programming code could
have been made easier. As it was I had developed a system to make the
notes. I loaded the program into gvim, and exported the color as html.
Then I wrote script which would add the HTML encoded code into the notes
where the scripts would find tags in my notes for the programs. I let
the magic of HTML and a standard browser do the rest.

Even with the scripts used to speed up the process, it was hours of
work.

Now I need a book by Friday for my 5th grader, a Biography on FDR. So I
have zero time off and I ran to LULU to see if they have anything. It
comes up blank. I'm going to have a problem. 8+ years into the digital
revolution and I STILL can't download a simple Biography in book form on
the most important figure of the 20th Century who wasn't named John,
Paul, George or Ringo.

I just want to thank all the hard working people in Congress for there
worthless contribution.
