OK, that's a lot of bibles

As I was telling scionofgrace in my rant-laden thread on the vagaries and occasional nonsense of academic economics:

If you look at the Red Hat Linux Bible, there was one for 7.0 (13 Dec 2000), 7.1 (May 2001), 7.2 (15 Nov 2001), 7.3 (21 Jun 2002), 8 (17 Oct 2002), and 9 (May 2003). That's 6 editions in 2.5 years! If the Christian Bible had been published that way, Moses would have been running out of Dead Sea Scrolls by the time he was halfway through Leviticus 8.2 and Teach Yourself Numbers in 40 Years.

P.S. : A lot of my friends seem to be having rough days - tiring, or just downright bad. I've certainly had a trask of a day myself, and am headed to bed now.
You all take care; CHOKLIT and sparklies to those who need it, lutefizz to those who dknot. Gnught!

Bwahaha!
Oh, that is hilarious.
I've shared it with teunc.
That amused several of us this evening, the first decent one in several.

Thank you!
Please keep posting these!

I have seen another version.
I actually have a dozen to add to that, half of which have already been covered, including five Jane Austens by other people.

Here's mine, anyhow.

Friending.
I'm friending you, if it's not a problem. I found your journal by way of the "computational geometry" interest. It always gives me hope to see applied mathematics brought to bear on non-physicsy problems.

No problem at all - I've added you back.
Welcome!

I have a CS/Math filter (which is heavy on math and development until I split it into programming, AI, and theory).
See "Tronkie Lairs" on my front page.

Nice icon. Have you seen these? I especially like the matching <a href="http://www.kleinbottle.com/klein_bottle_hats.htm>hats</a>, "a perfect gift for anyone with a zero-volume head."

I could probably make one of those hats if someone wanted it. ;-)

Re: Friending.
Thanks. The hat link amused me greatly. The Klein bottle is there (in my icon) as a pun on my name, in RL.
