I have good news and bad news for you:
Bob is working undercover for us to recover as many
used books as possible out in the marketplace.
You'll be able to buy used books (probably ones that you're
particularly interested in) very cheaply in the near future.
Hope all's well with all of you.

At work we use LINUX for billing and the Billing IT Staff use LINUX on the
Lab side (Where I work) we just installed LINUX on our first PC. I am the
only person who knows jack about LINUX on the Lab side, but after installing
SuSE 7.2 all Bob (One the the IT guys) could do was say wow I had no idea
LINUX was this far along. I have loaned him some books and who knows this
be the start of something good.
This only happended because of a request of a Doctor (I am looking to find
out who he is :-)).
