I'm glad to learn otherwise as it is still a valuable resource, and I would add here that the code of the Parallel` package is also very helpful, being clear, well commented, and written entirely in the Mathematica language. This is one area where its incorporation into Mathematica proper has been of great benefit, as there is obviously no longer any need to distribute the source in obfuscated form as was the case previously.
