Weekend reading revisited

Some things I found on the weekend which you might like. The UNIX-HATERS Handbook, which reminded me that for all the religious hype over Unix/Linux it really is just a kludge. (Hat-tip of the geekiest kind to Alastair Rankine.) A NY Times article How Dangerous Is the Internet for Children? Answer: not particularly. A fine Wired story about Titan Salvage, the smart, brave and somewhat scary guys who salvage ships. And Possums Pollytics’ wonderful response to an attack by The Australian‘s Dennis Shanahan.

    Proud to say that I still have my dead-tree version of the Unix-Haters Handbook *with* the accompanying Unix Barf Bag (unused).

    @Alastair: A barf bag, eh? Now there’s some sensible packaging! And still we use *nix…
