Subject:RE: Reference books you use the most From:jgarison -at- ide -dot- com To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Mon, 11 Mar 2002 13:27:14 -0500
1. I use the Web for reference these days more than most printed sources,
but here are some of both:
Various assorted general information sources
Tufte's books on information presentation
2. Online help for web-based application, written in Dreamweaver
3. I currently live with two dogs, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and a Doberman
mixed breed. Previously I had an American Short Hair (mixed breed) cat for
21 years, and a picked-up stray Maine Coon cat that my ex- still has. (They
deserve each other.) I guess I go both ways, but prefer the companionship of
dogs. To err is human, to forgive, canine.
4. On the liquid refreshment issue, I drink brandy and soda in the winter,
and Myers and tonic with lime in the summer. No diet drinks for me please,
except for some strange reason I still like an occasional Fresca. I like
Peet's Major Dickason's Blend coffee, but at work I drink Twining's English
Breakfast tea 'cause the coffee's so bad.
