  • Don't get me wrong, I have no beef with
    them and thankful they picked up TPJ.
    But honestly, I'd much rather have a
    smaller less frequent dedicated rag
    than this. If I want to buy a magazine
    about Perl I want to by a magazine about *Perl*, knowhadeyemean?
    Were that I say, pancakes?

      I totally agree. I have a SysAdmin subscription, and I have no intention of slagging off SA, but TPJ is (was) in a whole other league. Embedding the odd Perl article in SA won't change that.

      I was sincerely hoping for TPJ to continue as a separate mag, since I keep every single issue of TPJ, often referring back to old articles. One reading of SA is usually enough.

      If they really wanted to maintain the spirit of TPJ, they should have merged it into Dr. Dobb's Journal instead, matching the technical level much better.

      This will truly be the end of TPJ as we know it. Oh, bother!

        Hey, a lot more than that. One of my three columns appears every other month there!

        It'll be interesting though, to see what they do with my column, since they'll presumedly have a whole perl "section" in the magazine now. I wonder if I'll have to coordinate my ideas with them first to ensure minimal duplication of topic.
