      You're not flipping the bozo bit on me, are you? Real people don't need to call their colleagues.... Oh, never mind. :)

      I like the color coded arrangement, even though it leads to strange subject groupings and separations.

      I note two copies of Learning GNU Emacs in your collection which do not appear to be different editions. We won't disqualify the whole entry, though. ;)

      Extra points for owning UNIX Text Processing!

      There is no orange in your entire collection, so it looks quite a bit di

        Which is how many pounds a year?

        But seriously: Shouldn't we be able to hand in proof of ownership of, say, 50 O'Reilly books (no, I'm not there yet) and get our choice of:

        • Build, Make and Test your own Bookcases
        • Power Tools in a Nutshell
        • Running from Falling Shelves
        • Book Shelve Hacks
          • Yo, Gnat, are you listening?
    • I have a copy of the lion book, and you do not! :P

      I can't believe it's out of print, now. How do newbies learn system calls, these days?

      +0.5 for some of the X manuals (and -0.5 none of the Motif versions).

      +2 for UNIX Text Processing

      +1 for Cracking DES

      +3 for The Frame Handbook

      +1 for one of those DCE books.

      +0.125 for one of the W3J's

      -5 for not having any of the BSD manuals: USD [oreilly.com], URM [oreilly.com], PRM [oreilly.com], PSD [oreilly.com], or SRM [oreilly.com].

      :-)

    • OK, here are updated shots (left [petdance.com] and right [petdance.com]) of my bookshelf from home. Mind you, this isn't my work bookshelf, which has all the stuff that I use daily. It's a lot more Perl-heavy.

      Ziggy will be glad to note the Motif manual. I'm rather pleased with having found The Frame Handbook, too.

      jdavidb is incorrect that the two versions of Learning GNU Emacs are the same. One is a 2nd edition, but it's very small print that tells you that.
