I read the books usually at home (for the first time). Thats the only place I can effort time for reading a book.
After reading a book, there are four places:
1. A bookshelf directly above my monitor, so I just lean forward and pick it (for the real good books)
2. A bookshelf in my office at the door I have to get up and take a walk of 4m (for the books that are good but not sooo good and not so frequently in use)
3. There is my box for the stuff to sell in ebay (for the books that I would never buy again)
4. There is the mystic place somewhere in the offices (maybe on bookshelves of my my colleagues) where the books are that I mostly need to look something important up, and in most cases I am unable to find this place (usually the very best books are there)
Hey, want to buy a copy of the IBM-1130 FORTRAN manual...?
Hmm. Good Stuff.
What about "Peter Norton. Inside the IBM PC"
The one with the in-depth description of the IBM-PC cassette-player interface...
"We trained hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganised. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganising: and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress, while producing confusion, inefficiency and demoralisation."
Is it just me or do tech books suffer from the most awful titles? They are incredibly long.
Programming Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 Core Reference
Programming C# : Building .NET Applications with C#
Data Structures and Problem Solving Using Java
Practical Guidelines and Best Practices for Microsoft Visual Basic and Visual C# Developers
I don't see the sense of having "Microsoft ASP.NET" when "ASP.NET" will suffice. Or "Building .NET Applications with C#" when "Building applications with C#" will suffice. It isn't going to be "Building Java Applications with C#" now is it?
I only bring this up as I am listing all the books in the office and my web-app has to truncuate nearly every single book title. And that is before you get into things like 2nd, 3rd, 4th and nth editions.
I leave all my books at home. I just started with my graduation project and I bought all my books before. I might move them to the office when I need them there. I won't leave my books there since I don't have any private space there.
Anybody else working in a so called flex-office?
