Rusty -
I have good news and bad news for you:

Bad News:
Bob is working undercover for us to recover as many
used books as possible out in the marketplace.

Good News:
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 :-)).
