Building a computer is much easier than most people realise. The components are relatively inexpensive, easily available and the actual assembly requires only screwdrivers, small spanners and a pair of pliers. This book will enable you to assemble your own PC with the minimum of problems.
From buying and selling PC hardware to product development and selling services, "Start Your Own Computer Business: The Unembellished Guide" offers a realistic picture of making it on your own. Bestselling author, Morris Rosenthal, has 15 years of experience in the computer business, building and repairing thousands of PCs and helping hundreds of customers. The book mixes practical advice and cautions with real-world anecdotes of successes and failures. Dollars and cents play a prominent role in the book, as Rosenthal stresses that the real challenge of succeeding in the computer business is the business part of the equation. Managing employees, inventory and scarce financial resources are covered, along with how to remain sane and when to quit. The book is illustrated with a series of original cartoons on the computer business subject.
A groundbreaking, unifying theory of computer science for low-cost, high-quality software<br> <br> <br> The Cognitive Dynamics of Computer Science represents the culmination of more than thirty years of the author's hands-on experience in software development, which has resulted in a remarkable and sensible philosophy and practice of software development. It provides a groundbreaking ontology of computer science, while describing the processes, methodologies, and constructs needed to build high-quality, large-scale computer software systems on schedule and on budget.<br> <br> Based on his own experience in developing successful, low-cost software projects, the author makes a persuasive argument for developers to understand the philosophical underpinnings of software. He asserts that software in reality is an abstraction of the human thought system. The author draws from the seminal works of the great German philosophers--Kant, Hegel, and Schopenhauer--and recasts their theories of human mind and thought to create a unifying theory of computer science, cognitive dynamics, that opens the door to the next generation of computer science and forms the basic architecture for total autonomy.<br> * Four detailed cases studies effectively demonstrate how philosophy and practice merge to meet the objective of high-quality, low-cost software.<br> * The Autonomous Cognitive System chapter sets forth a model for a completely autonomous computer system, using the human thought system as the model for functional architecture and the human thought process as the model for the functional data process.<br> * Although rooted in philosophy, this book is practical, addressing all the key areas that software professionals need to master in order to remain competitive and minimize costs, such as leadership, management, communication, and organization.<br> <br> This thought-provoking work will change the way students and professionals in computer science and software development conceptualize and perform their work. It provides them with both a philosophy and a set of practical tools to produce high-quality, low-cost software.
We have all struggled to understand our relationship to God and it really is more than spiritual fire insurance. This relationship is the most important relationship anyone will ever have and yet the least understood by most people. I can only take in so much information at any given time, which causes me to break down information into useable sizes and formats. In this case Building a Pyramid of Understanding helps to give shape to thoughts and spiritual truths. In an effort to breakdown the understandings of God four triangles are revealed. These are summarized in the first four chapters revealing the aspects of God, Man, Temptation, and Christian Service. The pyramid is only being used as a complex shape to signify the complex relationship between God and Man. When you see the four aspects as triangles laid together they form a pyramid. If you see that pyramid horizontally cut into three sections, you will find three squares revealed signifying the three relationships to God. The basis of this writing is to serve as a tool in understanding the relationship of God to man according to the scriptures. This is in no way intended to promote some mystical relationship to pyramids. It is intended to provoke thought and introspection for the individual toward God. For years I heard it said, "We need to know the vertical relationship with God and the horizontal relationship with man, which symbolizes the Cross of Calvary." Where such thought originated is unknown to me. It also limits us to a two-dimensional relationship with a multi-dimensional God and His complex creations. In reality it is the type of thought that says, "I'm saved so everything is okay!" The fact is that your salvation is more than fire insurance. The call of God on your life goes deeper than simply meeting temporal needs. God is calling each of us to look at life through the many angles He created, in order to find the path He wants us to walk through life, the path we're called to uniquely walk throughout life's journey. We are not called to march in step with an earthly army of unthinking believers; we are called to uniquely walk in Him. My prayer is that this writing helps someone on the journey God has called them to walk.
