The reason this book doesn’t have a year published listed to the right is that apparently we aren’t allowed pre-1901 dates. Given the content focus of this site that seems quite a limitation, Tom. And to think I thought we had finally left behind the horrors which that evil, evil Y2K bug visited upon us…

I have absolutely no idea why that is. I assumed the “year” field in MySQL would take, y’know, years. Odd.

Enlightening review. I’m glad we have such books to turn to to explain things to crackpots.

My. Thats rather a lot to take in. But I like it! And I sincerely like your writing style, too. I have a sneaking suspicion you actually put THOUGHT into your reviews, which means I can certainly never post here again. And to think Tom, I was so very nearly finished that movie top ten that never ended. Sigh Oh well.

I’ve been intending to read this book for a couple of years, but now I don’t have to.

You could always point people towards the 3D simpsons episode, if they’re illiterate crackpots.

So we can only review books that were written after 1901 or during the year 0000?
