At this point I'm no longer working for a company that makes me sig
my life away, but by now I'm in the habit. Besides, I still harbor
the deep-down suspicion that nobody would pay money for what I writ
since most of it just helps you do something better that you could
already do some other way. How much money would you personally pay
to upgrade from readnews to rn? How much money would you pay for
the patch program? As for warp, it's a mere game. And anything yo
can do with perl you can eventually do with an amazing and totally
unreadable conglomeration of awk, sed, sh and C.
