A few months ago O'Reilly decided to send me all the books they published. They forgot that they published non-computing books. I started getting learned medical books. Well I have had that corrected (I wish theywould send their travel books). This book is an IT book but one that is just for fun. Reviewing books on cartoon strips and humour is a mugs game because what one of us finds funny another will find grotesque.

The book is a mixture of cartoon strips and half page cartoons. Let me give you an example. Man kneeling in front of what are clearly four computer towers with two going up in smoke. Heading: Redundant Array of NT Servers. Man prays 'I still have two left! Please, Oh please, Oh please...'

No, you cannot have my copy, buy your own
