"Why Do We Have All These Funny Shaped Dice?"
"Why Does Daddy Dress Like a Klingon?"
"Why Can't We Take Our Toys Out of the Package?"
So, with that clearly understood, let's review the book. I found it to be very funny, and my kids loved it. I work for Microsoft and while I am not in an IT role the book helped me explain to my very young kids some of what Daddy does at work.
The writing is clever and clearly articulates what the product does. If you are in IT and watch your kids eyes glaze over when you explain what you do, then buy them a copy and have fun!
As a children's book it will not win any awards for literary excellence or social commentary, but as a fun and educational book for your kids that can be had for the price of a nice cup of copy, it is perfect!
This is a well done and very funny story about Servers. Who would have thought a sentence like that would ever exist?
But I see you are up to your same old pricing schemes.
$5.95 for the book? Really!
I can get the Freeware version of the Linux book, "Mommy makes Daddy become a UNIX after she finds him Googling with the neighbor."
From the moment you open it's pumpkin hued glossiness, it grabs you and simple won't let go. And I could completely relate with those poor souls trapped in cubicle hell! It allowed me to see that those shameful bad words that literally jump from my lips, well, they just aren't mine. It is such a liberating experience to know that it was the servers at work that caused the behavior.
I cannot wait to show my son the love I have from him with my new Home Server. It practically brings me to tears every time I check the UPS tracking website.
Stop what you are doing right this minute. Go and order the book, and then order the Home server. Pay it forward for our children, and we will make this world a better place, one Home Server at a time.
I am sofa king we Todd did.
