Cool .. glad to hear that .. esp since all my other Python books are
even a bit more outdated :-)  .. the only thing that I notice missing
is coverage of the subprocess module which I will be using a fair bit
I think.

I had a 40% off coupon for our local Borders, so I couldn't pass that
up to get myself a copy of this book. No regrets.
