OK, something that's not a ping :-)

I'm trying to track down the author of a cartoon that I'd like to use
in my book so that I can try to get permission.  Last one that I need!

It's a cartoon that I only have on paper and don't know where it came
from.  It has two frames, then and now, the first with a bunch of
cavemen grunting awk, grep, mkdir, yank, the second with a bunch of
people sitting at computers uttering the same.

I recently stumbled upon something that said that these were in a book
called "UNIX Primer PLUS".  Anybody have a copy of that?  If so, can
you please check to see if that's the original or whether they got it
from somewhere else?

Thanks,
	Jon

This book can apparently be "borrowed" from the Internet Archive.  I'm not 
sure how they do that, haven't tried to, I just see it says you need to 
log in to borrow the book for 14 days.

The cartoonist was Bob Johnson.  That cartoon is on page 343.

The UNIX Primer Plus was published by Sams in 1983...
