    Re: Books & CDS

    I have a nice book from Microsoft Press called 'Visual Basic .NET Deluxe Learning Edition' which comes with the standard edition of VB .NET at a rather reasonable price.

    You are, however, a programming guru so this will be of no use.

    I tend to use websites when I want to know stuff so...

    Microsoft press 'Windows Command-Line Administrators Pocket Consultant'. Fantastic guide and has saved my bacon a couple of times.

    Re: Books & CDS

    Looking at the PC Pro thread concerning not using Open Source software in Education I was just wondering what other IT magazines/publications others read or subscribed to?

    Also in your opinion would you re subscribe ?

    Re: Books & CDS

    I subscribe to Linux Journal and thats about it. Most of my reading is done online these days (news sites, blogs, etc). Printed Computer magazines are going the way of the Dodo.

    As to the original question, I've recently bought a few O'Reilly books. Namely:

    Greasemonkey Hacks
    Learning Python
    Linux Server Security, Third Edition.
    Using Samba, Second Edition.

    Re: Books & CDS

    I did like the time I spent subscribe to winscriptingsolutions ... both the website and the paper mag.

    I do get a few of the more interesting "trade" pulp, the usual stuff you get after registering for them at InfoSec when you hope to win the latest sets of gadgets and gizmos.

    IT Week and Computing stay on my desk for one day. If I don't read them immedtiatley then I won't read them. On day 2 they go into the Library and are occasionally looked at by interested VIth formers or students doing coursework in other years.
