Nice book, if I may say so myself. I ghost authored it for Marc while I was drunk one night, channeling the spirit of Charles Babbage's lesser girl friend, Bea. Man, what a hangover the next morning, and it took days to sort out the Hollerith cards on which I typed the completed manuscript, after I dropped them in the street on my way out of the pub. On behalf of Marc, Thank you for the high praise. After all, he did buy all the liquor that night.
Perhaps you have never heard about Luke before, but lately he has been rocketing up the old Reputation list due to what appears to be a CodeProject bug (points for file downloads on all CP articles appear to be counted towards his article). The problem has been reported several times in Bugs and Suggs.
At the moment he is ranked #26, but I wonder just how high he will make it before they get the bug fixed. I think we should get a pool started.
[I don't want to link to his profile since you should be able to easily find it if you are interested, just don't report him. It is fascinating loading his profile, hitting refresh once in a while and seeing those points climb up.]

Why by gawd I remember back in the day we used to all go to the general store in the mornings and sit around the wood stove and text each other about the weather, relatives, crops, etc.. Why without social media like FB and Twitter I don't know how we woulda made it.
