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)

I've been busy assembling a good library of computing books (stuff that directly interests me, of course...so you won't find Java or such in this list), and I would like to get some input (in the event I've overlooked critical "must-have" books). I don't own all of these (yet), but I've been buying them left and right as I can afford it (I usually buy one or two each payperiod, used on Amazon...as long as the book is readable and not too banged up, I'm game). The (not-yet-complete) list...

This guide is in direct response to http://kpweb.homelinux.org/blog/index.php?id=17 - a guide that uses a rather roundabout and un-hacker like way to install Linux onto a USB stick using a virtual machine.

How to Install Debian onto a USB stick

Requirements

Debian 6.0 Squeeze - First impressions

Posted 08-05-2011 at 08:13 PM by DJ Shaji

I have been using Fedora since time immortal, but what with the stupid python installer and the ~1GB minimum RAM requirement, I was unable to use it any further.
