    Prices: $16 in the US, $30 outside the US. Web only subscriptions
    are $16. If we can get enough subscribers in the European Union, we'll
    start printing there too and lower the cost. If you like, you can
    start your subscription with the Winter 2004 issue and save money
    by not having to buy the back issue later.

    TPR accepts MasterCard, Visa, American Express, PayPal, Amazon.com
    Honors System, and check or money order in US dollars. Sorry, but we
    can only accept advance payment since we're too small to do handle
    individual billing.

    Samples to Perl user groups, Perl instructors, and other worthy causes
    are available.

    I just wonder how many people will perceive this as a commercial message...

    If you consider a signature advertising, do yourself, and maybe the entire
    Usenet community a favour, read the netiquette carefully.

    People may perceive that, but this is really a community project. I'd
    love to give it away from free, it it actually incurs costs, and I only
    charge what I need to pay the bills. No one gets any money for their
    work on TPR.

    I did think about this issue quite a bit though, and I'm completely
    aware on the non-commercial nature of usenet. However, Jon Orwant had
    the same sort of advertisements for TPJ during its time and it didn't
    seem to be a problem. It also wasn't a problem for the two years we did
    PDF-only issues and gave them away for free.

    At most, you'll see four of these messages a year, and I'm only sending
    them to two groups. In each group, I have a long posting history
    (although I've been less frequent lately) and have given quite a bit
    of free time to helping others. I think that might let those four
    messages a year squeak by. :)

    Just how the heck are to find out that such a resource
    even EXISTS, if not through here?

    Plus, at least in this case, the "vendor" is a person
    who has contributed GREATLY to THIS VERY NEWSGROUP!

    Not only that, but his (foy's) post is about a means
    to LEARN MORE about perl -- if that isn't of interest
    to most (all?) readers of this group, then I don't
    know what is!

    I myself would like to see MORE such posts, of eg
    especially conferences (non-free, thus "commercial") and books.

    Over at comp.lang.lisp, one guy has talked at length
    about his book, "Practical Common Lisp", and no one, as far
    as I can tell, has complained.

    (Well, he did post various versions of it on-line.)

    Over at comp.unix.solaris, one guy has written, and talked
    about at length, his book on programming to Solaris. Again,
    no complaints that I've seen. (And, as far as I know, in
    this case it is available only via getting from a publisher,
    for money.)


    In my opinion, the ends justifies the means -- *if* the
    ends are of benefit to at least a substantial part
    of a group's readership.
