My Geek Box

Posted on | October 8, 2008 |

Geek Box of Comp. Sci. textbooks

Yes, I’m a geek. As I was finally unpacking some boxes of books and papers that haven’t seen daylight in about 3 years, I found my fun box of computer science textbooks. Data structures, SPARC architecture, C++ — it doesn’t get much better than this!

And thank god they’re now within referencing distance as one never knows when one might need a handy heapsort algorithm.

    ooh, oooh, me, me! (the one raising his hand emphatically on the northwest side of town)!

    I need a heapsort algorithm!

    @Lindsey - Yep! I also came across some scratch notes that our programming contest team made while working through problems — that brought back some memories. Go Team B!

    @Bishop - Now you know where to go for all of your sorting algorithm needs. Quicksort, bubble sort, binary tree sort — I’ve got them all!

    Woot! I still have my copy of Kernighan and Ritchie’s “The C Programming Language”.

    You are a geek. Have you noticed that there is a high incidence of computer-geeky bike bloggers?

    I’m not one of them, but wonder what it means…

    @Hank - Always an excellent choice.

    @Tom - Yep, there are quite a few of us computer geek types that also like to ride our bikes. Don’t know why — perhaps we need some sort of outdoor pursuit to keep our skin out of the pasty white zone? Although, I’m not sure how successful I am at that.
