All I Want For Christmas...

...is a Slashdot review of Find the Bug. Any takers?

Powell's books has a Hot List, which Find the Bug appears on in the Technical Titles section (more details here). Quoth the webpage: "Whether selling in a piranha-like frenzy or at a pace, slow but steady, like a herd of manatee, these are the titles our employees and customers are currently referring to when they say, 'You've got to read this.'"

Sounds nice, but take a gander at some of the other technical titles that employees and customers are allegedly saying "You've got to read this" about. The Tesla Disc Turbine (Amazon rank 592,603)? Keep Your Lathe in Trim (Amazon rank 655,531)? How about Silicon Processing for the VLSI Era, for a mere $235.50 (BARG-ALARM!! Amazon has it on deep discount at $199.95). And please find me the person -- employee or customer -- who buttonholed someone else and said "You've got to read Nitroglycerine and Nitroglycerine Explosives" [ed: Amazon rank 1,027,282] without being arrested by Homeland Security?

Ah well. 'Tis the thought that counts. And I don't know about Photovoltaics: Design and Installation Manual, but Find the Bug does make a great gift for that special programmer in your life.
