I bought a used book “Inside COM” from Amazon Marketplace recently. This is my second Amazon Marketplace buy this year. I found for used (a little out of dated) computer books, Amazon Marketplace offers a great value.
Why I need to buy the COM book?
I found in order to really understand the .NET stuff, one needs to learn the COM. This is just like in order to be a good value investor, one really needs to pick up Graham’s “Intelligent Investor”. Reading the blogs by Buffett followers are fine, but definitely not sufficient. Because those second handed materials don’t precisely convey the ideas of the masters.
Google search not working on Internet Explorer?
It appears to me Google search stopped to working on Internet Explorer. Note previously I thought it’s just the IE toolbar (when I set search engine to Windows Live, it worked and bring up the Bing search results). Is this merely an incident? Or something on purpose? Maybe this is one reason Google is pushing its own web browser Chrome?
Found this Juggle web site, which has lists of popular stuff on the web (Art, Auto, etc.). Interesting stuff.
