Elegance Personified: "The Art of UNIX Programming" by Eric S. Raymond
The Art of UNIX Programming (The Addison-Wesley Professional Computng Series) - Eric S. Raymond



(Original Review, 2003-02-13)




My two cents on Unix, C, Gates, Ritchie, Jobs, Apple OS, Windows, C++, Objective-C, Java, BSD, ...

The toe curling pieces on Jobs were way over the top, rather like Gates, Jobs lifted a lot from other people. Ritchie and co, rather like Tim Berners-Lee, gave the computing world so much, and I do mean gave (let’s not be offensive, not equate the ham Gates with Jobs.)

Absence and Silence: "red doc>" by Anne Carson
Red Doc> - Anne Carson


(Original Review, April 10th 2013)


Look at the Pulitzer Prize. For whatever reason, it's highly regarded in America and it chooses novels (among all other kinds of works in its many categories) that are clearly literary, accessible to almost anyone, but infused with a seriousness and thoughtfulness that enriches the experience beyond the lighter pleasures of an airport thriller.

Barmy Kafka: "What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast - And Two Other Short Guides to Achieving More at Work and at Home" by Laura Vanderkam
What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast: And Two Other Short Guides to Achieving More at Work and at Home - Laura Vanderkam


(Original review, 2013)

This is all grimly self-helpish and there is no common denominator, so there is no top tips take-away. I’m coming from the Rough Guide’s “50 things You Must Do Before You Die” and all that, this is a bit of a double whammy. Are we supposed to squeeze the last drop of productivity out of every second? I spotted a book with the title “What The Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast” and I just had to buy to see for myself what it was all about. (Make it, presumably - or if they're really successful, have the help make it.) There is no end to it. Can't we just get our Weetabix down us in peace?

Reading progress update: I've read 20 out of 198 pages.
Describing Archives: A Content Standard ... Describing Archives: A Content Standard by Saa (2013-12-01) - Saa

So I have all semester to read this book.  I'm trying to push through today and tomorrow. 

 

It's soooooo boring.   Like so, so, so, so very, very, very boring.  I know it's important, but man. 

 

I'm just gonna get through it and then only have to look up what I need, I swear to Primus, because I will cry if this drags on all semester.
