My office bookshelf, part 1
Pete told me to:

  • Grab the nearest book.
  • Open the book to page 23.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.

The nearest books are all for web development, and the easiest to reach of those is Sams Teach Yourself MySQL in 21 Days (already I'm thinking I would prefer to Teach Myself Regular Expresssions in just 10 Minutes ! ).

"Each database has its corresponding directory, as well as files that store the data, configure the tables, and provide a way to access the data stored in the files."

The nearest literature of any other type is a magazine, Bio-IT World. Page 23 is an article on ZeroConf, a new ITEF working group:

"The answer is largely becauase our hardware and software have no inherent 'awareness' of other devices and services on the network, and require considerable manual effort to configure and maintain."
