Guess What’s Back. School is Back. Back again.

Yep. Time for more college happy good fun-time for me! I had a nice summer ‘off’, getting work done, having afternoons to do … whatever. It was great. Time to get back on the grind.

Speaking of the grind, it’s always nice to see that the college ‘book’ market is still a raging mess of greedy publishers trying to eek every dollar they can for mediocre content.

Oh uCertify, you certifiable if you think that this is a good deal.

I’m sure everyone has already heard enough of the various tirades that come up once a new semester starts. I just wanted to have my own rant about it. Now that it’s out of the way, I want to talk about something good.

My school has negotiated access to O’Reilly’s Safari Bookshelf! That means I can sail the seven seas of all the technical documentation and how-to’s I can stomach. The upside of this being that I can get many if not all of my textbooks (not like the code above) without having to buy or rent a book I’ll likely never need.

Hooray for silver linings!
