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.


David

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.

David
