    A Tech Industry Must

    This is a tech indusrty must. It was even recommended by Jim Coates in the Chicago Tribune. he Said, 'It is a very useful piece of work. I learned a bunch of things from it even though I have been messing around with this stuff for years.' What more do you need?

    The title says it all...

    If you are one of those people who are looking for a quick-fix, this is NOT the book for you. However, if you are thinking about building a computer or added equipment, consider this book as a starting point. It shows you the 'ins' and 'outs' of what to expect; when you design a server. Frankly, This book...ROCKS!!
