    Caro’s Fundamental Secrets of Winning Poker 

    I borrowed this book from the library, both because it happened to show up in a catalog search, and because I recognized him from Poker Superstars II. Format is the Who Moved My Cheese? of poker. I see it as a motivational quick-read vs. providing detailed stategy: about 10 pages for each game, large print, with 1/3 page blackboards summarizing main points. The book is short enough that there’s no risk in picking it up and reading it: at 150 large print pages, it’s a quick read.

    The Mythical Man-Month 

    The classic software engineering essay collection turns 20 years old. Interesting perspectives from 1975, 1986, and 1995. "Four new chapters" Chapter 18 is a re-examination of the original 1975 essays. Some minor clarifications are brought to light by time, but most assertions still prove completely true.

    remotesplit for cscope revisited 

    I’ve decided to go with a remote tactic that’s slightly more reliable than my previous tactic: Name the gvim server by the contents of the $DISPLAY variable. I have side-by-side PCs with their own X-servers, so I want to send the file to the gvim server that is outputting the same place as my cscope session. I now grep the $DISPLAY out of the gvim server list, to determing whether I am going to set up a new server or use an existing one.

    My remotesplit:

    gvim –serverlist | grep -i "$DISPLAY" 2>/dev/null
    if [ $? -ne 0 ]
    then
       gvim –servername $DISPLAY $*
    else
       gvim –remote-send “<ESC>:sp $CSCOPE_ROOT/$2<CR>:0<CR>:$1<CR>:-1<CR>” 2>/dev/null
    fi
