Better than comic books

We are having a CS book giveaway downstairs in Nichols.
No, don't all rush down there at once: some of these books are 20, 25, even 30 years old!
But wait, if you order now, you can get back issues of CACM from 5-10 years back thrown in free!

Some of these e-commerce and Internet books from c. 1996-1998 are better than comics, I tell you.

BNJ has moved to its new home on SourceForge!
I have also given a new look to bayesnets - please check it out!


Let's see, what else is going on? Long, fast afternoon.

Talking on IM with Jan Antolik about his thesis revisions, chatting with istari_ala about her impending move to Manhattan, KS, USA, listening to dashamus tell a funny story about being mistaken for a Ph.D. Saying hi to scottharmon and tv_elf. Issuing invitations to the BNJ v3 premiere to scottharmon and hermes_imagod (no red carpet - sorry, guys).

Much regaled by yahvah and his hope of a Millenial Harem. Amuzzling, that guy.

Small and harmless person - you around? I'm online, if you're in the lab.

Edit, 18:45 CDT: Did I mention that my office got a visit from the Special Hell Fairy today? :g:

I'm all about old books. I've snagged 1970s editions of FORTRAN and Pascal books from J.P. Tremblay, as well as a book entitled "Assembly Programming on the PDP-10".

Not that I'll ever read them; they just make me feel hardcore. ;)

Now, there's a tagline if I ever heard one. :g:

I love it when professors clean out their offices. The graphic arts department just cleaned out a table full of old macromedia and adobe and computer manuals. I almost choked to death giggling when I saw the claris works 3.0 manual. I also snagged the manual for the first(ish) version of mathematica. It sits next to my mom's 1970's copy of Gray's Anatomy (price: $14.95).

Hrm, f I'd known you had a use for old Mathemmatica manuals, I'd have held on to the 2.0 one I just tossed.

Re: Thanks
It is an all-day working meeting culminating in the official release of BNJ v3.

It will start at 10:30 CDT and run until around 17:30 CDT. We have our regular meeting at 16:00 CDT, so if you can join us then, that would be great.

It will be in N236 Nichols Hall.

Hope to see you there,
Banazir
