compscibooks and more GMail

compscibooks is now created.
This is a discussion community for computer science books: textbooks, monographs, even science fiction and general fiction featuring computer science.
I would love to see reviews here, and will cross-post my reviews of CS1, CS2, graphics, AI, and other textbooks there.




Yoinked from dakotamidnight:

Made ya look! (Wlokay, made phawkwood look, anyway. :nirg:)

Your Boobies' Names Are: Elvis




... and by this we discover that breast and penis names are invariant for this blogthing. How, um, original?
(What? It didn't ask for the user's gender, you say? Well, yeah, but it could have used this LJ gender-typing tool to venture a guess!)


In other news: I have six GMail invites again. Please comment here if you'd like one.

You tell me! *g*

(And did you mean the breast-naming, which is a relatively ancient innovation, or the automatic LiveJournal gender analyzer?)

Re: What WILL they think of next?
Haha. Both, but I saw the gender analyzer many months ago. I didn't even know that breast-naming is a relatively ancient innovation. Which cultures did that?

... I'm not sure. I was thinking of a letter from Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn in which he professed a fondness for her (actually unnamed) ones1:
Wishing myself (specially an evening) in my sweetheart's arms, whose pretty dukkys I trust shortly to kiss.

Tripitaka conjectures that I confabulated the aforementioned dukkys into Huey and Louie. (He also reminded me of a rumor, documented to be false, that alleged that Anne Boleyn had three breasts.

1 This letter, oddly enough, made it from the Vatican Library to an exhibit at the Milton S. Eisenhower Library at Johns Hopkins, where I would go to study from 1987-1993. I can't remember whether it was a replica, though.

My boobies names are apparently Tweedledum and Tweedledee. How original.

In other news, my penis is apparently named Gummi Worm. Well, at least it's creative. I think.

And I guess I'll get a GMail so they can archive all my email and use it against me when I least expect it. It'll be interesting to see how long it takes before it becomes a wretched hive of spam and villiany...

Huh. Well, what do you know. Apparently mine was just a coincidence! That'll teach me to generalize from a single data point.

So be it... Dwarrow!

Could I snag a GMail invite? I just realized how far behind I've gotten in early-adopter-cred recently.

Sure thing
Should I use the address in your LJ user info?

Please drop me a line at banazir[AT]GEEMAIL.com to let me know what name I should use.

From the poll
"[Bad username: namecensoredtoprotectignorant] -- Bush, because he sticks to what he says and doesn't back down, even if it's wrong."

I find it amazing that some people think that obstinancy and refusal to adjust one's opinion to changing situations is admirable, and worse -- the quality we need in a leader who must deal with a volatile world.

Re: From the poll
Further, there is a vast difference (to my mind) between being resolute and stubborn.

Resoluteness vs. stubbornness
Well, one hopes the difference will be borne out in the polls.

"[Name changed to protect the ignorant] -- Bush, because he sticks to what he says and doesn't back down, even if it's wrong."
Gah. That's not a glowing recommendation - and in fact, I'd take it as an indictment of any candidate.

Well, it's a perversion of:

("Use immutability to combat the myriad changes.")

Somehow the above is not what I think the sages meant.
