Joseph's Christmas and Birthday Wishlists

Page last modified Tuesday, 17-May-2011 20:20:12 EDT

Thank you so very much for wanting to buy me a present!

I don't really have my lists partitioned; they're pretty much the same list. ;) The items here aren't in a particular order. You'll also note there are some high-dollar ones (e.g. pcHDTV cards and the lasers book) as well as much cheaper ones (classical CDs tend to run *real* cheap. :)

Please note that used books are perfectly fine! The information in 'em is still good!


  1. Computer Books for Work

    1. GNU C Library: Application Fundamentals
    2. GNU C Library: System & Network Applications
    3. Modern C++ Design
    4. Effective C++, 3rd Ed.
    5. More Effective C++
    6. Exceptional C++
    7. More Exceptional C++

    9. Effective STL
  2. Computer Books for Fun:

    1. The Cluetrain Manifesto: The End of Business As Usual
    2. Seeing What's Next
  3. Fiction Books:

    1. Most anything from science-fiction is great. Used or not; doesn't matter. Deutsche Bücher würden fantastisch sein! :)
    2. Fred Saberhagen's Beserker series, except from Beserker Fury and Beserker Kill
    3. Thanks to Shannon, I am now addicted (and aware of the existance of) Fox Trot books, and must now collect them all. I have the following:
      • Your mother thinks square roots are vegetables
      • [title here; forgot it right now and it's not with me]
    4. I suppose political books fall under "fiction," so they may as well go here. I'd like some political books. :) Both conservative and liberal are welcome; they both bring perspective.
  4. Science Books:

    1. Solid State Physics by Giuseppe Grosso (Editor), Giuseppe Pastori Parravicini (Editor)
    2. Solid-State Physics: Introduction to the Theory by James D. Patterson, Bernard C. Bailey

  5. Fitness

    1. More Dance Dance Revolution for Wii
    2. Some of those cheap but fun Wii action/movement games where you get up and move (e.g the "Party" series and the Wii Sports Resort)

    1. Any Georg Philip Telemann CD, preferably strings (not some weird rearrangement, 'kay? :)
