Three Novels, Computer Stuff, Civil War


Foreign Affairs by Stuart Woods. Your quarterly installation.

See Me by Nicholas Sparks. Man meets woman and romance begins.


CompTIA Network+ Certification Exam Guide: exam N10-006, sixth edition by Mike Meyers. I have no idea what this is but figure it will be used. Page 436 says, "To get on the IPv6 network, you need to leap over this gap, to implement an IPv4-to-IPv6 tunnel."

Civil War Album: complete photographic history - Fort Sumter to Appomattox edited by William C. Davis and Bell L. Wiley. This is very neat. A tall and thick book filled with almost 4,000 images. Page 447 says, "Beyond the Wheat Field, at the southernmost edge of the Rose Farm, raged a heavy fight that left scores of dead Confederates behind."
