Tech Ed Lost and Found...

Folks,

Anyone who was at Tech Ed, if you happen to find a Wedding Ring, with "6-10-78" and "...There is Love" inscribed on the inside, could you see that it gets back to me?

Long story, but in recent months, I have been going through treatments that have caused me to lose lots of weight.  Among the consequences of that is that my wedding ring occasionally falls off.  I resisted folks telling me that I should get it resized, in the hope that I would put the weight back on and then would have to get it sized again.  Silly me.  Sometime on Friday, I lost the ring, never heard or felt it fall off, did not notice it being gone until we hit a resturaunt for dinner Friday night.

Getting it back would be a very nice thing, as I doubt that I will be able to put another 28 years into any replacement ring.  The old ring was frankly a cheap, some would say crappy ring, but having it back would mean the world to me and my long suffering wife, Jean...

 

Are Software Development Books Obsolete?

I don't think so, as I say here.

The Internet offers any numbers of ways to learn about software development, but it is difficult to do on a Web page the sort of thing that a good book can do.

What do you think?
