Well, they couldn't be farer away. Perl was invented by a linguist guy, Python by a mathematician. The have a total different approach and style.

Anyway, that probably won't change that DMCA stuff.
Strange, I like Perl better than Python and I'm a mathematican at heart who loves ebooks!

Without the "P" you are left with "LAM".

Well, you like what you're emotionally attached to and not necessary what's the best matching choice. Have you tried Python? Python wasn't an instant love for me but if you work with it a little bit you enjoy the options.

E.g. I like my C64 but in todays standard it's not that hightec machine ...

Yes, I've worked a bit with Python when coding plugins for ashkulz's Impserve proxy-server program which allows ebookwise hardware readers to surf the internet and download content.

I also tweaked PDFRead, originally written by ashkluz in Python, but did that while learning the language. I tend to think linearly and not like OOP. I think its just me.

Funny thing, ashkulz too kept telling me that I would love using Python, but I didn't see it that way. I let him do all the hard coding; I just tweaked things!

Oh, BTW, the C64 was nice, but the real ass-kicking multi-tasking graphics system was the Amiga (and all within 512K RAM)!!!

I'm an old fashion guy on one side. I used MS-DOS despite Win95 was out and first I blame the new stuff as 'gay' or other things.

After some time I recognized that I'm just too comfortable to change my opinion.

If it is doing the job it's fine. I even like Perl sometimes because you can impress some non-perler with some fancy one liners .

"Gay"??!!
What an extraordinary way of describing it. Some of our gay members may have something to say about that.

It seems it can mean lame also.

But the OED also notes another change taking place in the US as early as 1978, when it becomes a description of something "Foolish, stupid, socially inappropriate or disapproved of; 'lame'."

There's a big ad campaign going on the US to try to get the "gay=lame" terminology out of common usage.

I'll admit, it makes me cringe to hear it, just like when someone says something is "retarded".

Lending library ebooks seem to be treated the same way as physical books. The library buys N copies and these can be lent to N readers at a time. If an ebook is in demand, they might buy more copies. There may be an additional cost per check-out for an ebook, but if so I have not seen it referenced on OverDrive's web site.

A difference to physical books is that each ebook format (MOBI, PDF, ePub) must be bought separately. So a library could have 3 copies of an ebook but if only one is MOBI and it has been checked out a second MOBI reader will be shut out until the ebook is returned (after a fixed time with MOBI) even though there are 2 PDF copies available.

I still use the word to mean that. I refuse to let a perfectly good word be "hijacked" into having only one meaning.
