in reply to (OT) Blast from the Past: The Pink Camel

Believe it or now, the Pink Camel is still my bible. I got it for Christmas many years ago, and I've still not had the requisite book budget to upgrade to a more recent edition. I still find it useful, too, in part because I tend to know exactly where everything is in it and in part because of my archaic need for printed documentation. Perhaps I should look into a leather binding for it and have the Camel embossed on the front in gold leaf...

As an even further OT aside, big ++ to O'Reilly for making durable books. I'm pretty rough on my tools, and any book that can stand up to years of heavy-handed use, precarious stacking, and lying open (face up and face down) on the nearest flat surface (not to mention surviving spilled drinks, etc), is a marvel of modern engineering. I've not lost a single page, and the cover is only a little frayed about the edges.
