Yes, it's me. And I didn't know there was another Matthias on this 
list. But there is a Matthew, which is close enough.

It's good to know you're still a Schemer after almost 20 years. I was 
very happy to be able to show Eli the back of The Littler LISPer (Trade 
Edition). It is not too often that a "book fan" writes letters in the 
peculiar style of the book.

I am glad you're having a good time with PLT Scheme. We built it for 
you and all the other students of good programming and the people who 
use it for elegance, fun, productivity, curiosity, and even for those 
who are porting the hygienic macro system to C# 4.0 (just in case Don 
Box is lurking here somewhere).
