What Books Are You Reading?

Post by Ambush on Wed Dec 16, 2009 4:51 pm

Just wanted to see what books you are all reading. I know you're reading your bible already so don't list that...right...right?! I'm currently only reading children's books with the pictures in it.

I've still not yet finished The Heavenly Man. It's a great book I highly recommend it. It's makes you feel as though you are there with him. What this man in China and his family have endured will be greatly rewarded. From what I understand he is still alive and preaching in Europe some where since he was kicked out of China. I've not yet finished the book. It definitely makes you feel guilty about saying that we are being persecuted. How about an electric baton in the mouth and every beating you receive from the po po is basically you're beaten half to death, but some how survive. Definitely torturous.

Computer Repair, fourth edition. Also whatever my daughter wants me to read to her.

I'm also reading various tech-related things on XP and Vista, on-line. Managed to knock XP down to 360MB ram=usage at idle. Definitely faster now, allthough I screwed up my CHrome browser in doing so. Not sure what I did to do that, I'll play with it. At lest there's IE, right?

For married people, there's the Men's Relationship Toolbox.

For history buffs, I'm going to re-read "Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors", an outstanding account of the suicidal stand of destroyers, destroyer escorts and escort carriers as they were attacked by the Imperial japanese Navy's largest surface fleet they put to sea, ever. And won. three days of no sleep put Admiral Kurita in a bad way, and the lack of solid comms between his ships had him convinced that he was losing, mere minutes away from totally obliterating the task force and steaming right up to the landing site and causing all sorts of trouble.

Muahahaha, fixed Chrome on XP - all it needed was a box checked on using system fonts. Happened after I deleted a bunch of "stupid-I-never-use-these-fonts" fonts.

So, as the hours dwindle before I can crank Steam back up, I've found that I've WRITTEN a whole bunch. I got around 60,000 words on a little fictional story that's not quite done yet (maybe two-thirds), I'm cranked out a rough outline of my pocket hacker/sleuth/crime-solver RPG if any of you guys want to be guniea pigs lab rats experiments play testers, and I managed to finish another little fictional story out into a finished draft.
