Book Collection

Posted 08-08-2011 at 11:12 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
Updated 10-26-2013 at 09:26 PM by rocket357 (Update books I own)

It's been a while since I got one of these calls. Somebody with a strong Indian accent, using an English name (Andrew, this time), and claiming to work for Microsoft.
After introductions, this is the conversation:
