I just finished "Diamond Age" by Neal Stephenson for the second time. I started Michael Shermer's "Why People Believe Weird Things" this morning.
And my to read list keeps growing:
Missionary Position - Hitchens
Infinite Jest - David Foster Wallace
Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid
Reamde - Neal Stephenson
Glory Road - Heinlein
Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea
I think I still enjoy the atheism books because of the things I learn.
How do you like the Hacking book? Have you ever read "The Cuckoo's Egg"? If not, it's a must read for the hacker types.
MYSQL, off topic but I didn't like the little exposure I had to MySQL. Seemed buggy.But on the other hand, SQL Server isn't free.
The hacking book seems pretty good so far. It is very code intensive after the first chapter. I haven't gotten very far in the book yet. I just got it on Thursday, but so far so good. I need to boot the live CD that came with the book and see if there is anything useful besides the codes. I use Backtrack for just about everything.
Yeah. MySQL takes some getting used to, but its the price for living in the open source world. I have a partition for Windows, but I haven't booted into it in about three weeks.
