    Revenge of the Prequels: An Ode to "The Director"

    • 1 Comments
    This isn't terribly technical in nature, but everyone's talking about it and there are certainly technical elements in it, so I thought I'd link my review of Revenge of the Sith here. It's actually on my non-technical blog over on MSN Spaces.

    Barnes & Noble promotion

    • 0 Comments
    <shameless_promotion> Addison-Wesley has asked me to mention that B&N is doing a big promotion of my SQL Server books right now. I believe the figure they cited was a 40% discount, IIRC. Check with B&N for the details. So, if you're interested...

    I've always found the story of the early days of the PC industry to be extremely interesting. One reason for this is that I experienced those early days myself. I have my own memories of them. Another is that the PC's eventual rise to prominence is the...
