The Matt Welsh book was in the Public Domain, then picked up by ORA as
a formal product - others took the free version and printed it up and
sold it as a commercial product (will all appropriate attributions),
just as Matt seemingly wanted (based on his choosen distribution of the
book) - just a trivia point, nothing more...

BUT, I have an old SLS diskette set (30? diskettes), can't cite the
age, as I am away from home at the moment, as my wife just delivered
our second - a beautiful baby girl we have choosen to name Mary. Both
mother and daughter are doing great!
