RE: SQL Language Quick Reference

All right, the pack rat strikes, again.  I've a copy of SQL Language Quick 
Reference for Oracle 7 here on my desk.  Got a snail mail address?

I'm looking for a way not to have to lug a weighty laptop around :)

I am a Luddite at heart, don't have a PDA, don't want one. My cell
phone is the "plain vanilla" variety -- no pictures, no ringtones, no
text messaging, no websurfing, no games.  

I think I must be a librarian at heart (which makes sense as my first
choice of jobs would have been English teacher and my mom was a school
librarian before she retired)

and before Jared throws me off the list for going too off topic, I'm
gonna end it here.
