PC Annoyances Help an Annoyed Person

It's great to find out that my PC annoyances are not unique. Just from initially flipping through to skim the contents, I discovered the ShopSafe concept. Now I'm wondering why my credit card company didn't make me aware of this feature. Maybe it was just something obscure that I missed in all those reams of paper about privacy that they keep sending. And that was just the beginning! Steve's book is a gold mine of information

Take Flash 2004 to the Next Level!

Let me just say that this book is fabulous. This is something the Flash community has needed more than it realizes! I've read a handful of books that get you started, and a handful of books that cover the most esoteric ActionScript programming possible... but there has simply not yet existed a book that covers the middle ground.
For someone who knows the basics, even of an older version of Flash, this is the book you want. You learn how to make a complete, real, functional, PRO website using Flash, and you learn all of the must-know techniques that took me forever to figure out! Plus, the author teaches you the best practices for programming correctly in ActionScript 2.0, making this one of the few books to do so.
All in all, I would recommend this book to nearly everyone interested in serious website development in Flash. It's a wonderful book.

Not recommended for the A+ Exam

I cannot recommend this Book for the A+ Exam.
The A+ Topics are discussed in a hard and unpleasant way. After reading 350 pages, i had to stop reading and had to look for another A+ training Guide. It is not as easy to learn for the exam with the book from David Groth as with other books.
During the exam, i realised that most of the discussions in this book haven't anything to do with the real A+ exam. So this Book isn't very Exam related.
Don't waste your time with this book, there are other, much better A+ Training Guides out there.

A must have for serious ASP Developers

This book is one of the best i have ever read about a programming language. It is a complete reference and guide, has very good examples and believe me, you will find tips and information you won't find in any other asp books,web site, forum,etc and even from Microsoft!!. Since the book is written by various web developers you get real-world knowledge of ASP. There is a good chapter that teach you how to design a web application.They explore other technologies like XML,ADSI,CDONTS;COM,COM+ and its relation to ASP.I recommend it for serious ASP/IIS developers.
