attention". No more so than Vic Abell's signature mentioning the fact
that he is the author of lsof. (I just happen to post more frequently
than he.) SSP is an accomplishment I'm very proud of, and I think that
mentioning that I'm the author of that book in my signature is one way
of establishing my credentials (not everyone will look in Google to see
how much credibility an individual is worthy of).

seem to be implying. Both my book and APUE cover a similar subject (one
might argue that SSP is in fact a superset of APUE), and I admire Rich
Stevens' writing style--a style that in the sincerest form of flattery,
I've attempted to immitate (I'll take your words as a sign that I was
somewhat successful in that attempt). It shouldn't be too surprising,
then, that the two books appear to be at least superficially similar.
